The absolute worst is when they can't get the powerpoint presentation to start, so the presenter just stands there not knowing what to do.

I know exactly what you mean. I recently had to create a presentation summary guide for a technology conference, and my instructions were basically to layout all the presenters' PowerPoint slides in booklet form. Needless to say, all the slides were hideously ugly, being made in PowerPoint on gaudy Microsoft templates and jam-packed with bullet points.

Most presentations fall in a sort of dead zone, not having enough information to be useful, and not having enough focus to be interesting.
