The Worst Presentation Habits

Blah, blah, blah, blah. Mike Sansone linked a great post through Twitter last night. From SmartLemming: the 10 Worst Presentation Habits.

Here are my favorite three from their list (disclaimer: at one time or another I've been guilty of all of them!):

  • Reading from notes: you might just as well have emailed it to me and let me read it at my desk.
  • Failure to rehearse: bear with my while I get this to work, oops, sorry about that, I'm not sure why it's doing that. Hold on a sec.

  • Reciting bullet points: Dude, that's quite a bald spot on the back of your head. In fact, it's the most interesting thing in this presentation as you turn to read the paragraph off your slide.

Which presentation bad habits drive you crazy? Any others that didn't make the SmartLemming list?
