Hi Valary,

Thanks for your comment. I applaud your efforts because I think getting people to really focus on their audience is an on-going task! The audience is giving a presenter the gift of their time and if presenters took this perspective, I think they'd be more sensitive to what the audience needed.

Good suggestion about PPT custom shows for those presenters who just can't give up their reams of detail!



I see so many people struggle with this despite all the times I encourage people to really think about what is unique to each audience. Why should this audience want to hear from you? What takeaway can you provide for them? One way I have been able to wrestle extraneous slides and details away from presenters is to use custom shows in PowerPoint. This provides them with the security of knowing that they can easily access additional slides and details on the fly.
