Some feedback from the audience

retention rateI just finished conducting a 2-day presentation on environmental regulations in California. As I have done in the past few years, none of my PowerPoint presentation contained any bullet points. Here are a couple of comments about the presentation format from the audience:

“Great review of environmental regulations and law; enjoy the format; presentation was great because it wasn’t filled with bullet points; like that it was simplified.”

“Usually when a presenter uses PowerPoint, they tend to use it as their presentation. Mr. Wei used it to supplement his presentation as an aid. It tends to keep the audience more engaged and interested in the presentation.”

These comments were from two Special Agents with the federal government.

  1. Congrats Norm
    You show that it’s possible to use PowerPoint in an engaging way to support technical presentations.

  2. Thanks..Olivia….It was very gratifying to see how well the audience accepted the no bullet point approach. No one fell asleep. They were all engaged in the discussions. There were 7 U.S. Special Agents from law enforcement there to learn about environmental crimes. Some were armed and yet no one fired a shot! LOL.
