  • As with any excellent presentation, what you you see on screen supports and doesn't take the place of the presenter. Mr. Kawasaki understands this and the brevity of text on his presentation is punctuated by his speech. To understand, please go to YouTube and search for 'Guy Kawasaki The Art of The Start' which is in four parts. Watch this to understand why his Keynote presentation complements him well.

  • The entire Art of the Start series is very well designed. The use of a design theme is an underused philosophy.

  • Great slide design. The black background coupled with the header make for a very sleek and readable presentation.
