Use of visual aids in business meetings

Hi there, 

What are people's experiences with using visual aid technologies in your 
business meetings? I am finding we need more visual interest and people are 
averse to using a lot of handouts for environmental reasons. 

Currently we use only a chart pad, and we're often using pitiful markers 
because we just can't keep track of them (sad!). So the agenda is often written 
in red, and in poor lighting people just can't see well. 

White board -- do you use a big one for agenda?
How big of a board? How do you deal with complaints of marker odor?

This would be my preferred method, but there is resistance to it. The 
resistance to it is related to it being too "business"y, too advanced 
technologically and "would make me feel left out because I'll never learn to 
use it". Do you use it? What makes it work?

So now, that leaves us with... handwritten agendas on chart pads and paper hand 
outs. Sigh!
