Thank you for posting. I think the information overload (PPTs, web pages, emails) that we have to deal with has made people more open to new (more informal) ways to distribute information. There is a niche waiting to be filled for someone who can develop cartoon-based, elegant presentations.

Hi Garr

Just wanted to say thanks for your vote of confidence with the world's best presentation contest. I came across your website a couple of years ago when I was getting ready to present at Kencho in Yamaguchi-ken. Just before I spoke, was the worst presentation I had ever seen. Each slide had about 100 words in Japanese and all she did was read off the powerpoint. Everyone was asleep. I was the last speaker and I was doing mine mostly in English. I got the audience involved (about 200 Japanese teachers) and it was a success. I made jokes and kept it simple.

I want to thank you for helping me make my presentations better. I ordered your book and I refer to it a lot. It helped me with my topic on "Zimbabwe in Crisis". Thanks Garr.

I don't know... apparently at least one person on the Chrome team didn't think the comic book was so excellent:

The entire time I was reading it, I kept thinking "this REALLY reminds me of Scott McCloud". Then I get to the last page and... "Comic Adaptation: Scott McCloud"! Brilliant move, Google!


I often think that the same core skills are necesary to to make a really good presentation as direct a movie . . ok, the movie thing is way more complicated. However, the ability to get your point across and how to do it seem to evolve out of the same mental process.

Good post.


Thanks you.


Thanks a lot


Hey Garr... I didn't even know this was your site! I liked the book--though I do have a bone to pick about the stock photos... better if I explained with a video I made:
