Rick Altman, who runs PowerPoint Live (click here for details
), and I have been corresponding about my proposed session at this year’s conference. He wants to make sure that we don’t duplicate content so that the attendees get the most from their investment of time. I wish some corporate presenters would take the same care. At a recent set of presentations by executives from the same organization, the most senior person used some of the exact same slides that the person before him used and some from another presenter. Since this company was organizing all the presentations, couldn’t they spend 15 minutes to make sure that the audience would not be sitting there saying “been there, done that.” If you are organizing a group of presenters, please take the care that Rick Altman does and focus on making the audience’s experience the best it can be.
