Dear Members

I hope you had nice christmas and nice starting of 2012. I will be delivering a keynote presentation and i would appreciate your views here:
I may feel that writing the name of the presentation and my name on the first slide is a redundancy as attendees already know the name of the topic and the speaker name (myself) I would like to make it as minimalist as I can like in the apple keynotes, where there is little info there and you never see: "Release of new iPhone" by "Steve Jobs, Apple CEO"
Of course, I am not him and I work in a different profession (Medicine)

Thanks for your support :apple:

Depends on how informal/formal the keynote is. If it is formal I would definitely say yes.

So what is the question? Whether we think you should include your name on the initial slide of a presentation? Do what you like but I personally prefer having the names of my presenters on slides of formal presentations.

Thanks

My question was very clear in the thread title. Upon reading your helpful input, I have decided to include the name of topic and name of presenter as my presentation will be formal. Thanks a lot for your help
