I’ve been an active member of the Slideshare community, sharing, browsing, and collaborating on content and watching how nonprofits use the platform from about November 2006. Today, I have over 200 presentations in my account, some with tens and thousands of views. Presentations and instructional content are an important part of my content strategy and the lifeblood of my work as a trainer. Slideshare helps set my work free and share it with nonprofit professionals all over the world.
Slideshare has run a regular contest, “The World’s Best Presentation,” and this year is adding a nonprofit category. The contest uses a hybrid model of crowdsourcing – popular vote and then review by a panel of judges. I’m one of them, along wit …..
Guy Kawasaki is one of the best known authorities on presentations and social media.
David Armano is an expert on visual communication with several very popular presentations on SlideShare.
Carmine Gallo is the author of Presentations Secrets of Steve Jobs and Business week columnist on presentation & communication.
Jane Hart is the founder of Center for Learning and Performance technologies and an expert on social media in the educational space.
