Presentation guru Garr Reynolds offers plenty of Zen-inspired advice, but I especially like his comments on the typical presentation handout – often a “mere copy” of the slides. He notes that truly good slides are of little use without the presenter and I couldn’t agree more.

“Audiences are much better served receiving a detailed, written handout… you need not feel compelled to fill your PowerPoint slides with a great deal of text.”
