Redundant Keys

Have you looked at your key ring lately and realised you have no idea what those 2 keys are for?
Perhaps you’ve just kept them there because it felt safe to do _?_ just in case.

This also happens with a lot of presentation slides. There is a tendency to keep messages on the slides just in case the speaker needs them.

The problem is this can dramatically impact the memorability of your presentation. The more messages you ask the audience to remember the less likely they will remember.

TIP: When writing or editing your next presentation, focus on only have one key message per slide. But if you need to have more, only keep the messages you want your audience to remember. Don’t treat your slides as a script. Think of them as visual cues.
