Prayer for a Successful Powerpoint Presentation

O’ Goddess of Salespersons, Managers, and Keynote Speakers

Grant me the wisdom of MMLTD so that I may stay on topic and not derail into the kind of endless yammering that only occurs on the West coast.

Grant me the temporal awareness of Dr. Baffled so that I will not turn a half hour presentation into a two-hour staff meeting.

Grant me the experience of evangotlib so that I will not read exactly what is written on my slides, or accidentally reference the 47%.

And grant me the unwavering patience of MTS so that I will not laugh aloud at the audience-member who tells me my material is cooooooornfusing.
