How not to make a presentation

I’m sitting in a conference, watching some good and very bad examples of how to make a presentation. Note to self: don’t ever put an unexplained acronym, the word “synergy” and the phrase “added-value” into one sentence, whilst talking over a very text-heavy powerpoint slide that has no connection to what you are saying.

I'm always amused by our company presentations. We're a major IT concern; in software, hardware and technical services - yet every time someone tries to connect their laptop to one of the big plasma screens, we have to endure 15 minutes of blank screens, flickering, plugging & unplugging of cables, re-booting and much head-scratching.

Some wag always calls out: "Anyone here good with computers?"
