Teams: #FightCorona – In The Meeting: Take Control of a PowerPoint Presentation

When I started doing public speaking I always used to prefer doing it alone. I prefered it since I had control over timing, control over the content and control over the narrative. Doing community work the last 18 months has completely changed my perspective and I am happy to say I enjoy joint sessions and have already submitted some this year. Now, when doing sessions virtually - and I have had a lot of experience of this from running a virtual usergroup - there is the issue of one person speaking (the presenter) and another controling the deck. This can lead to awkward transitions or worse - one calling out the other to transition which breaks the flow of the narrative. We therefore need to ensure a smooth handover of control from one presenter to another for maximum impact
