The presentation looks great but to offer up a real critique, I would like to
know what your objectives of the presentation are and how long the
presentation will last. I'm sure that the show works better in powerpoint and

At this point, my only suggestion would be to read over all of your text and
make sure that it is all in the same format. It seemed to me that some things
were in outline form (grammatically incorrect, incomplete sentences, etc.)
while others were in complete sentence format. Such diversity can be
distracting. Personally, I prefer the abbreviated form because the audience
will spend less time reading the slide and you can fill in the blanks orally.
