“There were a number of very good presentations in this session – including a textbook example of how to use PowerPoint effectively when presenting a complex topic by Tim Stonor. A series of graphics and visuals woven together along the lines of: “We have a problem – it looks like this. Analysis of it is shown at “A”, and our options were “B” and “C”. We chose “B” because of X, Y and Z. Now have a look at what this looks like? Better? Good!” You don’t need reams and reams of text. (That said, his blogpost Life by a thousand connections is worth a read!)”
