Free copies of The Great Presentation Scandal to be won!


Anyone who's sat through hour upon hour of slides which zoom in, zoom out, disintegrate, are impossible to read or appear completely irrelevant will at some point have probably cursed the invention of Microsoft's PowerPoint programme.

So it's a relief to come across a book which questions the wisdom giving presentations altogether. The Great Presentation Scandal, says George Edwards of the Institute of Supervisory Management (ISM), is 'just so spot on' in its view that 'most presentations are purposeless'. George has more to add in a review of the book, which you can read on the ISM site.

The ISM have 12 copies of this great little book, worth £9.99, written by John Townsend to give away. All you have to do is e-mail the ISM with examples of the worst 'bungles', 'bloomers', or unfortunate sentence or slide you have endured in a presentation.

If you're not lucky enough to win one, you can also buy the book from the TrainingZONE Mall - would make a great stocking filler for those addicted to the mouse and projector!

Competition 'small print'

No 'urban myths' please. 60 words maximum. The Webmaster's decision is final. Include your name, position, organisation, (ISM grade if applicable) and postal address with your entry. (entries may be used in Modern management, the journal of the ISM; see main entry on this site). Closing date for entries - December 10th.
