The subject matter seemed relevant to my work and I was looking forward to it. The speaker I think was bored with the whole thing. She sat in her chair resting her chin in her hand as she spoke, staring at her screen. She went through the slides and read them, and that was about it.
After 30 minutes Anita and I slid out, as we had to stop the pain, and went to grab dinner and a well-deserved glass of wine. And as we sat there laughing and complaining about how poor the presentation was, we started mentioning all the other things the presenter could have mentioned and next thing you know we're having a brilliant brainstorming session.
So thank you bad presenter for a very effective evening.
