Presentation: Steps to Survive a Zombie Apocalypse

Back in the summer I completed the level 4 Preparing to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector (PTLLS). It is first stage of a PGCE (Post Graduate Certificate in Education) in Lifelong learning and is required to gain ‘Qualified Teacher, Learning & Skills Status’ in the UK. Not that I’m becoming a teacher but the qualification is required for all teachers to be able to teach in the further education sector in the UK. I thought it would be nice to have on hand for the occasional corporate training I deliver.

For my ‘micro-teach’ I decided to be a little bit different and cover the topic of surviving a zombie apocalypse.   Let me know if you think I’d survive…

A Very Different Kind of Sales Presentation – Sales Presentation 2.0?

I hate the fact I just wrote Sales Presentation 2.0, but hey, it got your attention.

Below I’m sharing a presentation format I’ve been using with Knowledge Plaza. It’s based on my original Meet Charlie and Daniel Siddle’s Meet Charlotte follow up.

This version is based on an imaginary Pharmaceutical company.

I’ve adopted this presentation style when visiting a client’s site after discussing their aims, ecosystem and aspirations.  Each slide-deck is customized to include their own tools, terminology and vision.

The feedback has been amazing.  Apparently most vendors go in with narcoleptic slide-ware without considering how their solution plays with a broader strategy.  I’m not blowing my own trumpet, merely highlighting a successful presentation style and somewhat naive but well received approach.

If you use these slides please credit me/Sid, unlike a few large consultancies I could mention who embedded my slides into their own narco-deck without a mention :-0

Say hello at Online Information

I’ll be at the Online Information exhibition from Tuesday to Thursday this week.  On Tuesday I’ll be giving a presentation about the work I’ve been doing with the Knowledge Plaza guys which includes a run down on Social Search, and how the product came to market after a pilot at one of the largest consultancies in the world.

Tuesday evening the Knowledge Plaza team will be buying the drinks at the l-restaurant at 2 Abingdon Road Kensington.   I also have 100 of these 2GB USB drives to give away preloaded with my presentation.  So come say hi at booth 794 or join us for a drink on Tuesday.
