This is one of my favorite points about making effective presentations, tell supporting stories. However, I think in a one hour presentation three good stories for every point is too much. I think one or two would be fine. This allows for more interaction from the participants and allows you to better gauge if you are making an "emotional" connection, and allows you time to adjust, if you are not.

Absolutely! Let's end PowerPoint co-dependency. One of the most successful presentations I ever did back in my big Corp. America days happened when the multi-media, dancing dog and pony show died a horrible death and I had to -gasp - actually talk to the prospects!
