  • The audience is here to learn more about the topic from you. They are not here to watch you read your slides. <br />
  • Involve them <br />
  • Forget using them as a telepromptor <br />

See Reference section for the complete reference. Garr also has a blog that talks about this form of presentation, http://www.presentationzen.blogs.com/ <br />
