Challenge PPT default structure (a single word or short phrase headline supported by bullet list). Instead:
1. Slides appropriate visual aid for the presentation (better than no visual at all!)
2. Success = audience UNDERSTANDING
3. Slides =/= handout
4. Slides help audience understand, NOT serve primarily as reminders for speaker.
