Paul Brown, CEO and founder of FiveSight writes about the Tufte article on PowerPoint, and blogs his response in PowerPoint, the Misunderstood Dictator. He leaves some very good advice for delivering good presentations:
- Speaker's notes belong in front of the speaker, not in front of the audience.
- Slides or other visual displays should be used exclusively for dense information or for thesis-level text.
- Narrative should be interactive and audience-driven in terms of the depth and pace of delivery.
- Detailed, take-away information should be provided to the audience in the form of notes.
