Just received this from a colleague who works at SlideRocket:
This is a such a fun and hopeful story I just had to share. And, I had the opportunity to see it unfold first-hand as I am doing some work at this company (SlideRocket – think PPT on steroids!).
We all know people who have struggled to find work. This young woman got tired of the “send in a résumé and get ignored” drill so she used SlideRocket to create a “Présumé” (presentation résumé ) and Tweeted it to the CEO. He loved it, invited her in to interview and she started work at the company 2 weeks ago!
Here is the “Présumé” she sent the CEO: http://portal.sliderocket.com/AIWCI/Iwanttoworkatsliderocket
You seriously need to click that link and watch her présumé — it’s bloody brilliant!
Seems to me that we are seeing a definite convergence of video and presentations. Presentations are finally evolving into what they should always have been — visual storytelling. I’m lovin’ the process!
So what’s YOUR presentation strategy?
