Attending Gartner IT PPM Next Week?

Reporting in Project Online…..or…..How to Make a Technical Presentation Fun and Interesting

Apparently, it takes lots of salty Danish licorice.  Take a look at this presentation from Microsoft Ignite last week where Allan Rocha and Mike McLean do all the heavy lifting, and I sit in the back and make snide comments.

Maybe that’s the path forward for technical presentations.  One person to present, and the other person to make fun of the presenter.  Not sure all of the jokes worked (for instance, the joke about the Danish band fell a bit flat to the audience), but in the spirit of continual improvement, let us know what you think.
