It's a tricky balance; the presentations are vital for stirring the pot
and bringing up good things to talk about.  But you risk having people
tune out if it goes on too long.

My rough guidelines would be:

  1.  Think more conversation than lecture
  2.  No more than 15-30 minutes of prepared content (it's okay to
consume an hour or so, but only if you're not the only person talking).
  3.  Every presentation goes to the group as a whole; you can plan more
details for a break out group, if you like.
