Toni's description is good for a staff meeting where no training or detail investigations are required. Toni, meetings diverge because there is no good thread or agenda - not because there is a Power Point! Power points are used to teach and inform. The "101 Level Class" is plebeanly misleading. Again - Toni, Most Power Point presentations ARE "101 Level Class". Majority of people in business are 101 level! An example I've been in is " Elementary Quantum Physics" Do this one face to face without a blackboard/whiteboard or at least something to demonstrate your points! Power Points make good handouts with the notes printout. Sorry Toni that you do not understand presentations, training and the difference between conveying information and a meeting that is just a party!
In closing, I've seen this type writeup several places and they are all mislead. However, it must be a good business to spin out something useful and argue against it. Maybe I should clean out and oil up my old manual typewriter?
