I apologize for not posting anything new for the last 11 months. My energy has gone into developing a new blog, which took more of my time and attention than I had anticipated.
You can see my new blog at ChristopherWitt.com.
It focuses on leadership, speaking, technical presentations, and selling ideas.
Those four issues have always been my focus. So why the change? Why transition from LifeAfterPowerPoint.com to ChristopherWitt.com?
I still dislike PowerPoint. I still believe it’s a mediocre piece of software that is, more often than not, poorly used. And I still advise leaders and anyone who wants to influence and inspire audiences to avoid using it.
I’m not in any way disowning the core message of my book, Real Leaders Don’t Do PowerPoint.
But I don’t want to be defined in reaction to PowerPoint. I don’t want to debate its pros and cons. I don’t want to be thought of as the anti-PowerPoint person. (Edward Tufte deserves that title.)
I want, instead, to broaden the discussion. Specifically, I want to explore the place where leading and speaking intersect. Which is why I’ll also examine selling ideas and technical presentations. After all, shaping, articulating, and presenting ideas—selling ideas—is one of the primary tasks of leaders. And technical experts of all stripes are increasingly becoming the leaders of today.
So, please, if you’ve enjoyed what I’ve written here in LifeAfterPoint.com, check out my new blog at ChristopherWitt.com.
When you sign up for my free newsletter there, you’ll receive my 32-page eBook, How to Sell Ideas.
