  17. Planning & Preparing Visual Aids • Enhance the meaning or impact of your speech. • Limit the # of slides (1/minute). • Start with a rough draft. • Be sure your aid is simple. • Limit the animation!! • Do not simply have an outline of what you will say • PowerPoint may supplement your demonstration, but may not BE the demonstration
