Avoid turning your back towards the audience [Part 2]

Last month, I shared a tip which will help you avoid turning your back to your audience. That tip is helpful when you are presenting on a stage. The solution I offered was placing TV screens in front of you and projecting your slides on that screen.

But that tip does not answer this question. What would you do to avoid showing your back while presenting in your conference room?

I faced this problem this Tuesday while presenting to my team. I turned my back to look at the slides more times than I should have. This was wrong and the solution I figured out was... 

placing my laptop in front of me.

When I face the audience, the screen is behind me and my laptop is facing me. This way, when I want to look at the slides, I can do so by looking at the laptop instead.
