  • thewikiman Ned Potter, Academic Liaison Librarian at University of York I'm afraid there isn't an audio version - this is designed as a stand-alone. If I was actually presenting this I'd use less text on the slides, or else I'd be breaking some of my own rules... 2 years ago

  • caldwdo Doug Caldwell, Instructor | Trainer | Facilitator at Caldwell Consulting, LLC Sherri: I would contact the author of the slideware, Ned Potter, LIFE-SHARE Project Officer at University of Leeds. Maybe he could record an audio voiceover or do a live Zipcast. 2 years ago

  • sherrinoble Sherri Noble, Training Developer at Emergency Management Queensland I love this presentation. Is there a version with audio? I really want to share this with my training staff and audio would really grab them. 2 years ago

  • thewikiman Ned Potter, Academic Liaison Librarian at University of York Robert, you're right - but this is a black and white presentation that doesn't really deal in shades of grey (e.g there are times when lots of bullet points can be fine, it's just that so often they're really bad) so I went with the positive option on that one...

    There can be a hostile crowd and a great presenter definitely needs the capability to deal with that in his or her arsenal. But this presentation is aimed at people who haven't thought too much about their presenting technique and can make things better with a few simple adjustments. So I don't want to scare them!

    Plus I am a librarian, and this presentation was produced for my (mostly library) based blog - and in my experience, library conference crowds are often at the very least willing to give the presenter a chance. I think that knowing the audience wants you to succeed can really help - particularly if you're a new or nervous presenter. So that's why I chose that wording for that slide...

  • caldwdo Doug Caldwell, Instructor | Trainer | Facilitator at Caldwell Consulting, LLC Ooo-Rah!! [its a Marine thing]. If you are going to feature Gunnery Sergeant R. Lee Ermey, retired Marine/actor on the first slide he is a Drill Instructor, not sergeant. The US Army has Drill Sergeants. During his active duty then SSgt Ermey was a DI from 1965-67. 2 years ago

  • rstackhouse Robert Stackhouse, Software Developer at Energy System Lab, Texas Engineering Experiment Station I disagree with the wording rather than the message of the second slide.

    I absolutely agree that you should make a presentation worthwhile for the audience. Otherwise, you are just wasting their time.

    However, I don't think that you can assume that everyone in the audience in the context of every presentation ever is on the side of the presenter.

    There could be people on the fence or even hecklers in the crowd. A good presenter needs to know how to deal with those types of people.
