From Scott Hanselman comes his top technical presentation tips: 11 Top Tips For a Successful Technical Presentation

Affectations mentioned by Scott actually take on a lot more. Presenter should be aware of them:

Spontaneous speech is filled with disfluencies—unwanted pauses, elongated segments, fillers (such as uh and um), editing expressions (such as I mean and you know), word fragments, self-corrections, and repeated words. Most disfluencies seem to reflect planning problems. When speakers cannot formulate an entire utterance at once, they may suspend their speech and introduce a pause or filler before going on. And when speakers change their minds about what they are saying, they may suspend their speech and then add to, delete, or replace words they have already produced.” — Repeating words in spontaneous speech. Herbert H. Clark and Thomas Wasow, COGNITIVE PSYCHOLOGY 37, 201–242 (1998)
