So many awesome things in this post!

I was fortunate enough that my office payed for coaching hours, and a lot of the things i learned and practiced are also outlined here.

While everyone will probably attack their presentations differently, i like to think that the slides are an extension of my presentation. They are there to help me get my message through.

I´d like to add that if you do have a very busy slide that cannot be simplified, maybe it´s a graph of sorts. You can use the ever so important black screen. Say, if you want to draw the audience attention away from the busy slide while you deep dive into something related, just turn the screen black.
