A lightning talk I gave on giving great presentations at the Maemo Summit 2009 in Amsterdam, in reaction to seeing so many poor technical presentations at conferences I attend. I hope people find it both entertaining and useful.

With thanks to Seth Godin, Garr Reynolds, Nancy Duarte and Guy Kawasaki for inspiration and material.
