Cliff Atkinson / Beyond Bullet Points

Cliff Atkinson is my new hero.  For those that don’t know, Cliff put together an MS Press book called Beyond Bullet Points.  In the book, he describes a new way of compiling and putting together presentations using PowerPoint (without bullet points!).  I used this style in a recent keynote I did at the US NAF (National Architect Forum) last month and it seemed to be very well received.  Half way through the presentation I was amazed at how many people were engaged with the message I was saying – actually 100% focused towards me and not doing Email!

Cliff also has a blog – you can check it out here

  1. Simon,

    I hate to burst your bubble, but we weren’t doing email because there was no connectivity!

    In all seriousness, though, I thought your keynote quite interesting and effective. The idea of having the users represented as the _keynote_ of an _architectural_ forum was absolutely refreshing and eye-opening.

    Hilarious!  If there had been connectivity it would have been a different story… 🙂

    Glad you enjoyed the presentation – I’m hoping to refine the message over the next couple of months…
