Many junior analysts are struggling to sell their minimal slides to a boss who is insisting on combing slides 2, 3, 4, and 5 into one "to save time". Here is one line of thought you can try: convincing here that slides 2, 3, 4, and 5 are in fact already one and the same slide, it is just an elaborate animation that you spread out over a couple of pages to make editing easier. "The audience will perceive it as one slide".

You can make your argument more credible by making sure that there are connecting elements on your slides that stay the same as you switch pages.
