Last week, the crew at Slideshare noticed that my online slideshows were being ‘noticed’ by more and more people. So they sent me this email titled “You’re a SlideShare Rockstar” …

Hi GeoffBrown3231, We’ve noticed that your slideshow on SlideShare has been getting a LOT of views in the last 24 hours. Great job … you must be doing something right. 😉
Why don’t you tweet or blog this? Use the hashtag #bestofslideshare so we can track the conversation.
Congratulations – SlideShare Team”

Well! With my ego well and truely ‘tickled’, I then noticed that heaps of people were ‘favourite-ing’ my latest Slideshare slideshow (done in collaboration with Viv McWaters). I then received another email from the team at SlideShare …

Hey GeoffBrown3231! Your presentation is currently being featured on the SlideShare homepage by our editorial team. We thank you for this terrific presentation, that has been chosen from amongst the thousands that are uploaded to SlideShare everyday.

Congratulations! Have a Great Day!, the SlideShare team

So, I’m officially ‘famous’ in the world of SlideShow-Sharers AND it’s nice to get noticed and receive comments like these from time to time …

“Great job. The kind of presentations that do make a difference.”

“wow – love it … I wish had more time to do it right”

“simply brilliant”

“This slideshow captures the message better than 100s of attempts I have seen to date. Congratulations on a great job.”

Here’s the Slideshow that I put together with Viv McWaters as a part of a 1-day training course that we call “Insanely Great Slideshow Presentations“. The training draws from our own experience as Facilitators and blends it with a wide range of inspirational sources – with the most influential person being Garr Reynold over at Presentation Zen. The last half of our featured SlideShare slideshow adapts many slides that were designed by Garr for this terrific slideshow here.
