Seeking Audience Questions for Next Kennedy-Mighell Report Podcast

We’ll be recording the next episode of The Kennedy-Mighell Report podcast on Friday. In the last episode, we had a segment in which we answered an question sent to us in advance.
We enjoyed it so much that we’re thinking of making it a regular segment in the show.
Of course, that means we need to have some questions to answer.
For the upcoming episode, we’re planning talk about whether lawyers have turned PowerPoint into a presentation-killer, with ways we think PowerPoint slides and presentations can be improved. As an aside, the tips in one of my most popular articles ever give you a good starting point, even ten years after I wrote them.
We’d welcome audience questions on (1) something to do with PowerPoint or the usage of slides in general or (2) legal tech issues in general.
You can email me your questions at denniskennedyblog @ or leave a comment on this post.
Give the podcast a listen and let me know what you think.

    Mr. Kennedy:
    I am an attorney in Kentucky. I am working with some colleagues on presenting a one-hour CLE program on using social media in law practice. Specifically, we are working on the half-hour dedicated to the ethics issues surrounding social media.
    We have focused on the following topics (these are related to the Kentucky Rules of Professional Conduct, but I am looking at other states’ and the ABA’s treatment of the issue):
    1) Advertising and Marketing, 2) Communication with potential clients,
    3) Communication with retained clients,
    4) Communication with witnesses,
    5) Communication with individuals with counsel or who work for entities with counsel, and
    6) Confidentiality, generally.
    We would appreciate any links, articles, contacts, or other resources you could suggest on the issue. We will also be happy to share a copy of our presentation with you once it is finished.

    Dennis -
    With the increasing use of webinars, I think it is time to break up powerpoint rules into two camps. What works for a live presentation does not work for a webinar.
    With a live presentation, you want the focus to be on you, with the powerpoint supplementing your points and providing necessary visual.
    With a webinar, the focus is now on the slides because they can’t see you. You need many more slides and visuals to keep your webinar audience engaged.
    Your thoughts?
