  • Concise, effective and to the point... If you’re interested in the chance to win a 3M PocketProjector MP180, then I reckon this would have an excellent chance in the 3MPitch category. Simply tag your presentation with ‘3MPitch’ and you’ll be entered. Head over to our page for more details!

  • Tony, while I concede 6x6x6... is probably a first step in the path towards more enlightening presentations, limiting to some extent the 'dead by powerpoint' effect, it is also true that the presentation arena has evolved in the last 4 years since you created this presentation. Books such as Presentation Zen (Garr Reynolds), Slide:ology (Nancy Duarte), or Multimedia Learning (Richard E. Mayer) show how this 6x6 or 7x7 is already a dated strategy. Because your presentation is so highly ranked -congrats by the way- you have the power, but also the responsibility of keep your readers up to date with the most raging topics in the area. I hope you consider either revamping your preso or at least providing some links to other well known contributors to this topic. Many thanks!
