Quotes From This Episode:

“We need to synthesize the 40,000 feet vision down into something that matters to the one person that we’re trying to present to or speak to.” —@douglandis

 “I challenge everybody that listens to this to go look at your first call deck and look at your first slide. If it’s about you, if it’s about your mission, if it’s about who you are or what you do, then you’ve got it completely backwards.” —@douglandis

“For a customer presentation, 65% of your presentation should be stories.” —@douglandis

 “Part of our job collectively in our organizations is to be curating great content and begin using that great content to get ideas about the next piece of content you want to create.” —@douglandis

“At the end of the day, just think about two things: what you’re comfortable with and who your audience is and how they like to consume whatever it is they’re consuming.” —@douglandis
