Fact: the human brain has a limited capacity to process information.  Think of a glass of water as the mind’s working memory. Once the cup is filled, information will be lost and learning suffers. Scientists call this the cognitive load theory.  Knowing this, do your presentations help your cause or hurt your cause?  Is your message simple enough to be remembered or is there too much information for your audience to process?
