Luck has it, at work place, I have been working with colleagues from both China and France. With due respect to both, not sure whether this bump in slide number has anything to do with ‘more’ to say. Both presentations and documents produced by these teams are normally larger than average in size, but when it comes to content I don’t see similar trends. Often, I found it otherwise. I observed the same in presentations or documents done by colleagues from India too.
