A lot of people assume PowerPoint is the one and only. Old faithful. Tried and true. This is the main cause for most of the flack PowerPoint catches. It’s the most well known platform, so everyone uses it – the good and the bad. However, there are so many options and platforms out there that you no longer have to be (or feel) tied to PowerPoint.… Continue Reading →

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 →
Here at Big Fish we all have our own inspirations and role models. We all have those quotes that motivate and inspire us to survive another day in the office. Most of the time we’ll share these quotes with each other, print them out and put them by our desk, make them our computer wallpaper – stuff like that.
Because of this, it only makes sense that we’d congregate all of our favorite quotes, pick the best ones, and throw them into a presentation.… Continue Reading →
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.

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 →
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.
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 →
They say there’s no point where you should stop learning. Here at Big Fish, we have to continually be open to different ideas, approaches and the far-off unknown. In this, we’ve always wanted to have a guest post for our blog. Unfortunately, we never really followed through on having a guest blogger… That is, until we met Sarah:
The following post is a guest post from Sarah Bedrick.… Continue Reading →
