I’m sure everyone has seen many bad presentations in their career, but the key is having the ability to recognize that they are bad presentations.
How you communicate your customer listening information is crucial in getting people to not only understand what you are delivering to them, but for them to buy into it as well. If they don’t understand your concept, they will not support it, and all of your hard work will be lost.

I encourage you to read Dan McCormick’s blog post "Are you killing your presentations?," which gives some guidance on avoiding some of the pitfalls of bad presentation design.
