The best, most effective presentations capture the audience quickly, hold their interest effortlessly, educate and entertain them in equal measure, and sometimes even inspire them. This half-day tutorial explores simple and effective techniques for achieving those goals in any kind of presentation. The first half of the course focuses on preparation, content selection, delivery techniques, and handling questions (or the lack thereof). The second half of the course is an in-depth tutorial on improving the "look and feel" of presentation materials -- especially Powerpoint/Impress presentations. In particular, it demonstrates practical techniques for making your slides not suck.
