Effective Presentations

What constitutes an effective presentation? Put your thoughts here:
  • An effective presentation is one that achieves the goal of the presenter (usually some change in the behaviors, thoughts or feelings of the participants.) Note that this means that there has to actually be a goal and the presenter has to know what it is and construct the presentation and present with that goal in mind.
  • My issue with most of these sites is their business perspective. Educational slideshows should be about attention and retention not emotional persuasion. I tried capturing that idea here, but more research is needed.

What are some good resources for presenters who wish to improve their craft?
