How to be the Coolest Person at Your Funeral

After attending more than five funerals in the past two years, Kenny asked himself: How can I craft a life story that others would love to tell? Though the past two years had been one of the roughest times of his life, it was also the most eye opening.

Casual Fridays: Stuart & Mr. Caffeine

For this Casual Friday, I’ve decided to take a departure from previous posts and talk about something I hated, rather than something I truly loved.

This is the story of the worst keynote speaker I’ve ever seen.

One thing I’ve noticed in my time here at Big Fish is the entire team shares a love for video games. Between the frequent blasting of 90’s music, ridiculous YouTube videos, and actual work, gaming is a common topic at our office.… Continue Reading →

4 lessons we learned from writing our own book.

Our goal has always been to help presenters. Our blogs, SlideShares and daily work is all about much more than gaining a following and making money. It’s about fixing something we find inherently wrong with presentations.

This has always been a value we stood by and strive for, so we were in awe when a major publishing company approached us to write our own book.Continue Reading →

Prezi’s Top 100

Here at Big Fish we pride ourselves on our presentation prowess. However, we don’t really like to boast about it that much. If you haven’t noticed, a lot of our blogs are mostly tips: top 10s, 7s, anything really.

Why?

Well, our goal from day one has been to rid the world of bad presentations. And, honestly, you don’t accomplish this by hogging knowledge.… Continue Reading →
