For my presentation to the Kijiji Ambassadors, all successful bloggers, I was rushing to get the slides done until 5 minutes before I needed to present. Only 45 minutes to talk over the slides, but I still wasn’t sure my story line fitted. Another session of PowerPoint Karaoke. Just click the button and see what turns up on the screen.
Making sure my presentation was somewhat successful, I pulled an old trick out of my sleeve; distraction. Although I did think the presentation was of value for the people in the room, my Orange shoes got enough attention that I know it was worth it to putting these on in the morning.
A number of the Bloggers present in the room tweeted about the Orange shoes, which was great to see that not only the content was received well, but also my slightly European sense of fashion got some airtime.
Some examples of the tweets:
And apparently, the bloggers in the room liked my slides and the fact I spent the Sunday night building a deck focused on specific next steps for them. Two more Tweets I’m sharing here which talk to the fact that the eBay speakers all prepared well:
Once again, it was my honor to present to you all. Your sites ROCK, and I only would like I could get a little bid more time building my own sites like you all have done already. Keep up the good work!
Update: More Tweets and pictures rolling in…
