My two killer advice for your presentation:
1) Have your laptop on the floor at the edge of the stage, not on the podium where the crew want you to put it. Then you can have a look at the preview screen while looking at the audience. Much better. Most presenters turn their back to the screen way to often. Don’t show your back (or ass!) unless there’s a reason. Look at your audience, not the screen behind you.
2) Move around. Don’t stand parked at one side. Our brains are not made for static. Stand on one side of the stage at one part of the presentation, on the other side later. It’s like with your brain: You need different stimulation, not just one side. Add a black slide once in while, and go the stage front, and talk to row 4. Or 7. Just that row. For 30 seconds. Move over to the left side and make the nest slide slide out from where you stand. And so on. Think 3 dimensions.

And the remote above is WAY better than enything else out there. If you do presentations, you need it. Period.
