Mark Dotzour makes a unique presentation to each audience and does not use speaker notes. So he strongly prefers to have his laptop at the podium. It allows him to present a lot of information in a short time frame and keep eye contact with the audience. He uses a laptop PC and his PowerPoint presentations do not have sound or video, and do not require an internet connection. He likes to keep things simple. He can either use his laptop or will bring the presentation on a flash drive.
