Not sure whether this is the best Board for this, but what the hell. I've just sat through yet another presentation by a "Grown Up" who obviously knows his subject, but who is totally incapable of putting the message across. It got me wondering how much of my life I've wasted in lecture halls, listening to dull people talking about dull subjects. Itâs always been so. First it was death by vu-foil, vu-foil on, vu-foil off. Then there were the slide shows, only enlivened when a slide got stuck and disintegrated in front of the audience. Then came PowerPoint. What fun we had then, sat in some drafty hall on arrse numbing benches, watching some hapless guy trying to get the damn thing to work. When the thing did work, we were treated with undecipherable text, mind-altering choices of colours and bizarre clip art. Its not all doom and gloom though, I've sat through presentations that were more like "Performance's" with cracking video clips, wizz bangs and text that flew in from all points of the compass. I havenât a clue what the subjects were, but they were first rate performances. Being clever has it drawbacks though, a couple of instructors at our trg wing were always trying to out do each other and quite often one would find an additional slide slipped into his presentation - its amazing what they can train horses to do! Not very professional, but very funny, particularly when a sound clip is also added. I guess the key is make your presentation interesting and check your slides before you present. Anyone else been at/done a presentation thats gone totally t*ts-up?
