The thought that get me joining ambassador team was "I want to help". I had a lot of enthusiasm but no direction at all. I constantly kept thinking about ways to help and nothing (good) would come up. Them I thought: "there should be guidelines, like scripts of things. to this that way and you'll be helping" to guide those like me.
Well, I don't know where else it would be applicable, but at first a thought about applying that to presentations. I know there's already a presentation session on the wiki. But it seems to me like a deposit of already made presentations. Things there are really confusing, disorganized and out dated. I was about to write that no one updates it anymore, but looking at the history I saw recent modifications, the latest on being from Mspevack, and the diff showed:
''THIS PAGE DESPERATELY NEEDS TO BE CLEANED UP. ALL OUTDATED
PRESENTATIONS SHOULD BE ARCHIVED, AND CURRENT PRESENTATIONS SHOULD BE
DESCRIBED IN GREATER DETAIL.'''
I had a training once from a big company and saw that the guy had those guidelines, what's important in that slide, what correlated subject he could talk about, the duration, etc. and the slide itself, of course.
What do you think about getting a session with the slides, organized by subject and maybe depth with the guidelines on how the presentation should flow? Slides made thinking about it, standardize, updated, revised by experts on that area in the community. It may seem like I'm talking in favor of dumb, incapable people, but it's really because there are those of us with the willing but without directions.
