    This was a good talk. I like the 'data dives' suggestion and coming back to a home slide. It's almost like breaking a lecture up into parts, making it easier for someone to pay attention to the next 'data dive' even if they spaced out on a previous one. It sucks when you lose track of something, and then everything else following that point in the talk doesn't make any sense.

    Thanks very much, very helpful. However, I'd just like to remeber that besides PowerPoint and KeyNote, there's also Beamer for Ubuntu people.

    one comment about "less is more". I think a common strategy used by a lot people is that put the redundant slides after the end of the talk. In this way, if someone in the audience bring up a question that could be perfectly answered by those slide, voilà.

    Most were really good advices, but please, don't present Comic Sans as an acceptable font, because it's not.

    Thank-you for such an effective presentation on presentations!  You have covered all the points I would have myself, and now I will only need to have the students (non English speaking PhDs)  watch this video, do some followup tasks and then we can move forward more efficiently.  Thanks!

    This presentation was quite good, from a presentation standpoint. From a design standpoint some things could be added:

    Comic sans is a badly designed ineffective font that doesn't work well when anti-aliased, please don't use it, people in the audience will loath your presentation if you use it.

    Limit yourself to one, at max two fonts; this applies to figures to. Many fonts will distract the viewer and look bad.

    No boxes, don't put boxes around figures, images or text, it serves no purpose and just makes the presentation look bad

    You absolutely don't have to limit your text colour to blue and black, I would avoid primary colours and go for darker tones.
    For light backgrounds and lighter tones for dark backgrounds, use adobe kuler to check contrasts.

    Limit your colour use, two or three colours is enough, try to apply this to figures, this might be hard in some figures, avoid primary colours and use adobe kuler to find nice complementary colour selections.

    A nicely designed presentation will make it more memorable and will make people pay more attention, a effective presentation need not be ugly.

    Amazing presentation. I'd like to know which softwares were used to unify powerpoint with the video image of the presenter in one single screen. I noticed the presenter was apparently looking at a screen on her right side, so she could be sure exactly where to indicate on the screen in order to, at the end, look like she really had a powerpoint screen behind her.

    What's so hilarious is that at about 30 minutes into her presentation she switched to a dark screen and I found myself getting very sleepy and I almost stopped the video. Then she goes back to the white screen, shows a bell chart, and starts talking about how the attention span of the audience goes down over a period of time. That's EXACTLY how my attention span was during her presentation. But it was a good presentation though.

    What do you think about the strategy to motivate the audience in an, ehm, old school fashion way even more?
    In times where some students do not know the number of sides of a triangle, I might suggest this approach:

    When talking in front of a large audience I use an inverted triangle formation. I choose 3 people.The first in the center of the front row and one on both the extreme left and extreme right of the very back row and alternate my gaze between the 3 during the presentation. Gives everyone the feeling your addressing them at some point.
