Early tomorrow today I head off the Louisville for 3 good days, of learning, networking, and sharing. This is one of the best parts of the job. The chance to hang out with like minded colleagues, and find out what the challenges are in other parts of the country. The chance to sit in on… Continue reading Off to the ANLA Mgmt. Clinic
I just came across a post by Seth Godin on the problems with PowerPoint presentations, and some suggestions on how to correct them. Last week I was really cracking down hard on a lot of presenters at the CENTS Show in Columbus, there were some bad ones . . . really bad ones.
