  • Hi iash2n, I'd be happy to - and sometimes do - provide a .pps for download, but I don't think that's what you want. Most importantly, as I always make clear, the slides are NOT intended to be useful or to be used on their own. Their only intent is to support my presentations. If they are useful outside of that context, that's great, but I do not encourage people to try to read things from the visual metaphors in my slides without attending my presentations, because they will simply be making up their own story, not what I am trying to tell. If people used these slides for other purposes than skimming through them, it would undoubtedly be in ways that are a long way from what I intended. In addition, there are licensed images in my slidedecks that are not licensed to people who download them.

    I absolutely encourage you to download and work with all of my visual frameworks - they are designed for that, although my presentations are not. I'll shortly be providing a single place where you can download all of my frameworks, which you can use in absolutely any way you want, with attribution.

  • Oh Ross,
    Some great ideas in there.

    Haven’t we talked about how future organizations will work with ideas and knowledge: share, connect, collaborate, and take them to higher level? In short, to ’socialize it’.

    Some of us need to download your contributions to work with it, put it in our organization’s context, and maybe invite your our next leadership retreat. However, ’download disabled by author’ comes from a false sense of control over IP. It’s anti-social. Think about it.

    You’ll gain more influence, attribution, and social capital by enabling your collaborators to work with your contribution, not just to look at it. It’s the difference between museum and workshop.

  • Hi Anna, certainly, it's on Creative Commons so use with the attribution included in the image is fine.
    All the best! Ross

    I always get so much from your presentations. May I use your 'Success in a Connected world' graphic with attribution? Al best
