Plus, there are added benefits with large paper charts created live:
- they are visible from almost every corner of the room
- all of the information is available at all times and the viewer has control over it, can go back (something you can't do with power point)
- real living and breathing people are making them right in front of audience's eyes and it makes these visuals more approachable and easy to follow
