Allan and Barbara Pease remind us that 80% of men can do only one thing at a time. So what about all those speakers showing slides, overloaded with text, while they keep on talking?

And the movie industry proves us that it is possible to keep an audience attention during 2 hours non-stop. So, what is their secret?
