It's easy enough to use Keynote to show something, and I prefer that over in-browser mockups, but sketches and working prototypes are the best though. So long as the audience has an imagination, and you need to prime them them for that.

I feel that career changes are harder after a certain age, so the over 40s might be looking at the constant changes in work and struggling to fit in. But it's very clear now that you need to keep learning as you grow older.
