4 T YPICAL PRESENTATION We all know that a typical presentation pretty much goes the same way every time. Each of them has a gazillion bullets containing too much text Which the presenter merely reads aloud and the audience might just as well have received a copy of the slides and read them The presenter often gets side-tracked into talking about a whole bunch of things other than the topic trying to be presented. Especially when there are some in the audience who interrupt with dumb questions, snide remarks, or who just want to sound like t hey know more than the presenter, when, in fact, they usually don’t. The slides usually ends up looking something like This jldfk ie/a wj lkd l;kf! Pmek dkon jjiwl ;flk j Then ksifl … you get the drift.
