  • 9. Avoid becoming a horror story presenter… • Don’t multitask while presenting • Exit all other programs and screens that are not part of the presentation, especially all messaging / chat programs • Use your computer’s extended desktop feature to project a new blank screen – you then have to drag windows that you want toblank screen – you then have to drag windows that you want to share with others (Display Properties > Settings) • For online meetings (Livemeeting / WebEx), share only the file you need to share, not your entire desktop. Log out when it ends. • Practice “ALT-TAB”ing until you get it down to a few milliseconds – it helps minimize any damage • Turn off any screensavers – specially when they are configured to display personal pictures • Technology fails – double check, and have a plan B
