Warning / disclaimer!
This page contains links to the visual props for presentations I've given as an individual rather than as an official. Sometimes the boundary gets a little grey; in case of troublesome ambiguity, please draw it to my attention and assume I'm speaking on my own behalf rather than my employer.
I try to build my "slides" for presentations as a starter for my talk, rather than as stand-alone documents. Consequently, they really are props rather than the entire content; it's not unusual for me to put up a surprising slide specifically to say why it's misleading, for example. Most of these quite deliberately *should not* make sense if you "weren't there". Nevertheless, they may be of some interest.
