In our effort to practice what we preach (and spread the good word of presentation design), co-host Mikey Mioduski has embarked on a quest to the TED Talk stage. 

For every keynote he gives, we give ourselves the opportunity to peel back the curtain into his thought process, training and delivery of a talk. 

In August, Mikey presented at the Go-To-Market Alliance in San Diego and he debuted his “Bump, Set, Spike” keynote—a talk to help master both Problem & Solution Slides. There were volleyball metaphors, great feedback, likely a few pieces to leave behind and even the making of a “Signature Bit.”

If you geek out on dissecting and discussing presentation iteration, this one’s for you.
