If you’ve attended a conference or tradeshow lately, you have probably noticed the bar steadily rising on your experience. Or not. While the communication of rich content will always be king, the methods in which it is presented is changing.
Like most of you, I spent a lot of my school days dreaming of the day that I wouldn’t be required to go to school anymore. Ironically, as soon as I left, I just wanted to go back.
Scott recently sat down with Mike Adams on his radio program “About Money” to talk about Silver Fox and our presentation best practices.
The final chapter in this blog series has taken a year to write. On one hand, it was a tad bit embarrassing to leave it unfinished, but on the other hand, it took that long to research, reflect, locate, and commit to an organization in which we could truly make a measurable and meaningful difference.
One of our frequent partners, Message Glue, is made up of husband and wife team Ken and Anna Boynton. Anna is a communications coach, and we’ve worked with her for the last six years on TEDx Seattle, as well as other events. Her husband, Ken, is the writer and creative side of the company, and he creates connected and compelling content. Recently we attended the launch party for Ken’s newly published book "Blip".
As we reflect on the events we supported in 2016, the things that come to mind are the thousands of miles we logged as a team, the number of events we supported (big and small), and the sheer number of presentations we’ve touched in some form, whether it be file support, formatting, or concepting/design.
We get excited when we win the opportunity to work with new (to us) companies. New clients mean new styles to explore and new challenges to conquer.
This year we had a great opportunity to run an internal competition designed around a new PowerPoint feature called Morph. As designers at Silver Fox, we pride ourselves in pushing the boundaries of presentation software, especially PowerPoint. We wanted to see what we could do with this new tool. Even see if we could break it!
There are times during the year when we are between jobs and free to be creative. I enjoy using this time to work on projects that can offer an opportunity to grow outside my already established skill set.
While striving to reach our potential, we should always remind ourselves of the journey and celebrating what life grants us. The following are milestones we’ve hit as individuals and a company this past year.
