Food for thought… How to build a set of meaningless introduction slides that will only focus on gaining credibility with the audience at the event you are presenting at, while yet forgetting that the attendees are there for the session content and not to hear about your awesomeness, where you’ve been, what you’ve done, and how awesome it is to be you.

Guilty? Presentation didn’t finish on time | Couldn’t demo what was planned for | Lost grip with the audience after minutes | Multiple people walked out of the room after sitting in my presentation for only 10 minutes | Was shocked to see the feedback scores and some of the feedback, let’s blame it on the attendee?
