A few weeks ago, I was invited to talk at the KREW Community of Creative Entrepreneurs. Even though I've been asked before, and in fact, I make videos and podcasts, this was my first actual talk.
Yet, I was being asked by Marc for slides. He wasn't pushing for it, but with every message, there was a friendly prompt.
I'm not too fond of slides. they take away from the story you're trying to convey, and they often don't look right. So for the past week, I was thinking of using slides. But in a way, that didn't take away from my story.
Today, the day of the talk, I came up with a lo-fi version. I have been thinking about it in the past and used it in my videos when demoing apps on my phone.
Why not share my iPhone screen, point it to my website. After all, my website has all the information in the headings.
This was my first 'slide'…
And, this was my last 'slide'…
See, you don't have to go full-on slide deck. People remember moment and stories. More than they will ever remember slide desks with text, images and god forbid you use them… GIFs!
What do you think? Am I crazy, or does this work?
