I got on a bit of a roll because of a few things.
Saturday, a number of us on the Bring IT, Together Conference committee met in London to evaluate the sessions submitted for inclusion in the conference. There were so many great proposals, including a couple that talked about how to make better presentations instead of the regular “Death by Powerpoint” ones. (One of their terms, not mine. Any tool can be used to bore your audience)
Another thing was the quite interesting collection of quotations from Wititude that I used as the basis for yesterday’s post. There are some great things there and the current format for creating memes with a graphic and a quote are featured there nicely.
Then, this morning, I read this story “Top 51 Motivational Quotes From Zig Ziglar“. Now, I’m not sure these are the absolutely top 51 but they’re all good and I can see using them in a number of scenarios.
Including as a slide in a presentation. Just because I hadn’t done anything in Canva for a while, I thought that I’d turn a couple of the quotes into a slide.
First this one…
and then this one.
The proposals that have been accepted for the conference are going to be awesome. The first round of invitations should be sent out shortly. If you’re in that last list (or just have to do a presentation or would like to enhance something that you’re creating), you might want to consider the quote meme. It can be very powerful and attractive.
Now, if I could only come up with something pithy to say, I might just end up being quoted.
In the meantime, check out the 51 quotes in the link above. I’m sure you’re find a use for some of them. And, if you can’t find any there, go to the top of the site to see quotes from many others.
