Other things

Thing 1

If you’re a conference organiser, let speakers use their own laptops, and don’t ask them to provide their presentations in advance

This gives your presenters more control, which in turn will help them feel more confident on stage, which in turn means your audience will feel like they’ve seen a good presentation.

Thing 2

After the event, share your presentation in a way that makes sense for people who weren’t there

Because presentations have two ingredients, it’s not always that helpful to just share your slides after the event is over. They might be a useful memory aide for people who were in the room, but they’re only half the story for people who couldn’t make it. Better to write a blog post instead.
