I can't remember his name, but there was one of those brilliant minds of his time who would always read his presentation out to his cleaner before giving it to the public.

The reason being, if the cleaner could understand it, no one in the room would be struggling to keep up.

Agree with BritTim, except that (in my experience) it's always the "speaker" who's supposed to make sure the audience understands.

Either way, for a change it's Dilbert at fault...

It takes two people to have a misunderstanding. It is up to the more intelligent of the two to make sure the other understands. So, sorry Dilbert, but you must be adjudged at fault here for failing to adapt your communication skills to allow for the intellectual limitations of your coworkers and management.
