We are big fans of Dave
McClure and his “10
Slides to an Awesome
Pitch”. We use this
structure with our
clients. It Rocks!
We also believe Dave’s
slide design can be
improved.
We have told Dave but
he doesn’t give a sh*t!
(That’s just Dave).
We decided to design
a new version of
“10 Slides to an
Awesome Pitch”
