A link which snatches the pebble from my hand! (ok, not Zen, but...)

Well, I think if you put together a dull and uninspiring presentation, you'd be wasting the time of all of your audience. I always tell people to spend at least a load of time preparing visual representations of their systems, techniques or problems. This is so incredibly important in presentations: it gathers the attention of the audience, it engages their creative mind and it keeps their attention on you (because they don't have to read). Furthermore, illustrations highlight the power of slides.

You don't need slides to convey text. You can tell people what text you want them to remember. You need slides to convey ideas, impressions and schematics, things difficult to tell. Nothing else.

...In my opinion :).
