To accompany your conference talk you may want to use visual aids. What some people do is re-use their PowerPoint slides which have worked well in their pitch books.
This is a huge mistake.
It’s the equivalent of making a movie by filming pages from a book.
If you want to use visual aids in your conference presentation then make sure these really are visual aids. I.e. do they really help your audience understand what you are saying? Are they clear, simple and can they be read at the back of the room. If not, then either leave them out or re-design them.
You will find that this simple change makes you much more impressive and you will come across as a more effective communicator.
