Coming Up for Air
Hi all. I’ve let the Extreme Presentation blog go quiet for a while, but I’m back now and wanted to let you know what’s been happening. My new “day job” as dean of the new School of Business & Economics at The Catholic University of America has been consuming a ton of time, but it’s a good cause and I’m enjoying it tremendously.
The other thing that’s been taking up a bunch of time is working with my collaborator and co-author, Paul Radich, to finally get The Encyclopedia of Slide Layouts published. The Encyclopedia uses the “slide chooser” (similar to the chart chooser) to organize a couple of hundred real world slides, to give you lots of examples of ways to organize your conference room style slides. We’ve run into a last minute publication snafu, when it turned out that the publisher, after assuring us that they could handle the original format size we wanted to use, came back to us and said, oops, sorry, can’t do it. We’re working on solving that problem, and hope to be able to announce it’s publication soon.
