"Hi Leo and Sarah,

I am a lawyer and although I no longer appear in court, I do give many public presentations at conferences around the world. Recently I was asked to give a keynote presentation at the end of a conference. I was asked to wrap up the conference and therefore had to include references to remarks from the speakers that preceded me in my closing remarks. Typically, I would take notes on paper and try to decipher my terrible handwriting when at the podium and incorporate them into my prepared remarks. However, recently I used my iPad for the first time when giving a speech. It was a dream. I took notes during the other presentations, modified my speech on the go and everything was perfectly legible. It is not very easy to lug a laptop to a lectern from the audience in this type of situation and the ipad worked well.

I wonder whether you have ever done a show where you discussed teleprompter apps for people who make speeches. PowerPoint is not always appropriate.

Love your show! Terry"
