Dazzling SlideShare Decks

Barry Feldman contacted me a while back to ask about my experiences with SlideShare.

We’ve had well over 1 million views on our We Are Social SlideShare account, and it’s become a cornerstone of our marketing, so he was curious to know if I had any tips on what makes a SlideShare deck ‘dazzle’.

Barry also collected tips from a number of his favourite SlideShare contributors, including the wonderful teams at Slides That Rock and Marketing Profs.

He collated these tips in this insightful post on the SlideShare blog a couple of days ago, but I couldn’t resist turning those tips into a deck of their own.

So here they are, uploaded to SlideShare in a (hopefully) dazzling deck of their own.

And true to the tip that I offered Barry, you can download the complete deck by clicking this link.


Thiago Krafzik used a quote from brand interpreters on his não esquece blog, illustrating it with a beautiful video that I couldn’t resist reposting here:


Many thanks to Thiago Krafzik for the intro.

1000 stories

Niemann NY Mag US flags, Chinese workers

Most of us are familiar with the idea that a picture is worth a thousand words.

But some pictures tell entire stories.

The illustration above, by Christoph Niemann, is certainly worth a few thousand words.

In fact, I’d go so far as to suggest that it expresses more than words ever could.

And that’s the key to strategic communication – finding the most efficient and effective way to establish a common understanding.

The ideal means for a specific end.

See more of Christoph’s fantastic work here –  I especially liked this image from his children’s guide to learning Chinese characters. I discovered Christoph thanks to ffffound! – a great resource for regular inspiration. Please note that the copyright for the above image remains with its original owners – please let me know if you’d like me to remove this image and I will do so immediately.
