What is hack day?
Well, it’s something we do here at Big Fish that, we guess, is unique to us. It basically involves working during the weekend. Now wait – before you close this window; know that hack day is much more than that.
See, we’re busy. Always busy actually. So when it comes to doing a lot of in-house projects or just fun ideas we want to execute, it’s hard to find the time to do it.… Continue Reading →

Our Casual Friday posts are meant to give you a look into the mind, thought process and likes of the people who make up Big Fish. We may talk about the things we like, don’t like, hate, so on and so forth, and then explain it… Or not explain it. It’s always kind of up in the air. The whole point is for you to get to know us a little better and add some faces and personalities to Big Fish.… Continue Reading →
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 is why we help companies, share our thoughts and provide tips and walkthroughs on how to combat the dull stigma of presentations. Our motto is “We turn presentations into experiences,” but it’s actually more along the lines of “We want to help you turn presentations into experiences.”… Continue Reading →

Preorder our new book, “The Big Fish Experience” to see everything we’ve learned over the years, all the resources we use to do what we do, and our tips on how to present experiences.
You’ve been in that terrible position. That dull, mind-numbing state of being that we call the boring presentation.
Lemme guess. It’s in a dark room. There’s a projector showing a handful of abysmal graphs and an endless list of bullet points. … Continue Reading →
“Practice makes perfect.”
We’ve all heard it. Many, many times, in fact.
Although it has been repeated many times over your lifetime, it still rings truth. In any skill that you choose to pursue, if you practice it enough, you will be nearly perfect at it. There’s no way to get around it. Unless you are naturally talented at something or get extremely lucky, odds are the only way to “sharpen your sword,” so to speak , is through repetition. … Continue Reading →

Today’s post is a recap of yesterday’s team retreat at the Zoo:
My graphic designer Corey recently asked me when can we go out more than ten miles as a team, and it got me thinking. I was already going to see the Baton Rouge Zoo on possibly doing some work together, and I thought,”Why don’t we just all go together?”… Continue Reading →
