I remember better if I write down things, underline, watch demos. If it's just talk, talk, talk, I tend to space out.

This is going to come off as somewhat callous, but to be honest, what a
person may LIKE to do and what makes a presentation more effective might
be two different things.

I may like to eat lunch during a presenation and can put forth a
justifyable reason, but that doesn't make the presentation experience for
the others any better.

I gurantee that if you didn't have the presenation in front of you on
paper, you'd listen more intently.

What I'm proposing isn't my preference...focus groups have proven the
effectiveness of not passing out the handouts until afterwards.
