Time for the Peer Review…

Monday, October 14th, 2013

I won’t lie – this whole book creation thing can get a little nerve-wracking…

After months of internal debate about the structure of the book and bucketloads of sweat over the choice of analogy, you finally hand over the finished manuscript to the publisher (in our case, the lovely people at Wiley).  The good news is that they loved it and are excited about sharing it with the world.

The next stage is to then share the manuscript with the industry bods you most admire and ask them for their opinion.  This is where it gets properly scary.

So…what was the verdict from luminaries like Cliff Atkinson, Nancy Duarte, Andy Bounds and Joni Galvao?  Click below where all is revealed.

Gratitude & Gelato

Friday, August 16th, 2013

Apologies for the radio silence over the last few days…but it’s for good reason.

I finally managed to take some time off, sip the long awaited mojitos and, thanks for some friends in Italy, gorge myself silly on amazing gelato whilst enjoying views across the Italian alps.  Nothing short of amazing…

Returning refreshed and carrying more than a few extra pounds, I was greeted by an e-mail from the brilliant Andy Bounds containing the foreword to the book.

It’s brilliant.

Andy beautifully summarises the importance of getting presentations right by thinking of the most important people in the room – the audience (it’s a bit of a theme throughout the book as you may have guessed).  His kind words and brilliant insight top the book off rather wonderfully.

You’ll naturally have to buy the book to read it in all it’s glory but I’ll share one key phrase:

Your audiences will love that you’ve read it.

Nicely said, Andy…
