Well, Lynn, I'm sorry you never attended one of Mastering Computers'
one-day Windows seminars back in the day. I'd have a audience of hundreds
of IT pros riveted, waiting for the next tip/solution. They were very
dynamic, and the whole thing was delivered in high-powered edutainment
style to keep everyone interested.
Oh, and I never once read from a slide. We'd use a large hotel ballroom
stage, our own sound reinforcement, and twin Barco three-beam projectors
displaying on the largest portable screens available.
That aside, I cannot stray too much from the given parameters. The client
company is comprised of a whole bunch of old schoolers and peeps who know
their industry, but *no*t how to create a dynamic presentation that can
actually be projected and easily read by attendees.
John G's suggestion is the leading contender at the moment. The presenter
could use the outline format in Word to initially lay it all out. From that
they could build out both a concise PPT and a detailed DOCX (or PDF).
