And the winner is…

Title seemed somewhat fitting on Oscar night.

Thanks for all the entries in the contest.  The winner by drawing is Dan Mandle

Dan I’ll contacting you for your address so I can send you your copy of Presentation Zen by Garr Reynolds.

And keep watching as I love running contests. I’m sure there will be another one along soon, for another fabulous and useful prize.


Reminder… Presentation Zen Contest Deadline this Saturday!

       Just a quick reminder that the contest for a free copy of Garr Reynolds’ book Presentation Zen ends on Saturday. 

To put a fine point on it, we’ll call the deadline Midnight, Pacific Standard time.  I’ll announce the winner in a post next week.

Remember, to enter all you have to do is add a comment to an existing blog entry: click the title of the entry, then scroll down to the comments section.   

Good luck!

Three Keynotes: PowerPoint Live 2007

Who are those people who speak first at confernces?  Those keynote speakers?  And why do they go first?

Could it be they know what they’re doing when it comes to crafting a message and talking to an audience?

Jim Endicott, Nancy Duarte, Julie Terberg and host Ric Bretschneider discuss the process and construction of superior presentations in the last of a series of podcasts recorded at PowerPoint Live in October 2007. You may have missed this fifth conference on presenting and presentation design, but you can at least listen in on the keynote speakers and learn a little bit about what sets their presentations apart from the norm.

Pictured above (inserts, from left): Nancy Duarte, Jim Endicott, and Julie Terberg.

This is the third of three podcasts recorded in October 2007 at PowerPoint Live.  The first is here. The second is here.

Soon… New Orleans Part Three…

Yes, it’s been delayed long enough. The final segment of the New Orleans trilogy will be posted shortly.  Just have to paste things together and post.  I’m currently lining up a new series of speakers that I’m particularly excited about… but more about that later.  Right now, a little peek into the final segment…
