When it comes to PowerPoint presentations, by and large a font is an unsung hero.
That’s because while crafting presentation slides, the font is on the last in priority list. In fact, the sad part is that for some presenters it does not matter at all.
Problem is that almost every presenter suffocates under the weight of hundreds of other tasks. That’s why instead of focusing on strategic or right use of font most presenters remain busy with integrating graphics, animations, visuals and oral preparation for the show.
