This week, Distilled’s Will Critchlow and I held our 4th "presentation-off" battle against one another as the final session of the London PRO SEO Training Seminar. We both put plenty of blood, sweat and tears into our decks and I think it shows. Enjoy:
A few notes from Rand’s Talk:
I hope you enjoy the talks and the Q+A. Feel free to cast your own votes in the comments, though, technically, I’ve already lost to Will by a fair margin in audience voting. I’ll have to work harder next time!
Firstly, I am never again going to try anything as crazy as auto-advancing slides for a 20-minute talk. It nearly killed me. I got the idea from the O‘Reilly Ignite talks which I think are awesome – theirs are 5 minutes long with 15s slides – I went for 25s slides because I had some pretty complex stuff to get across.
Secondly, huge thanks to everyone who came, everyone who voted for me (those who voted for Rand; I saw who you were…), Rand for repeatedly being a great opponent and everyone who had a hand in the organisation (especially Lynsey – our superb events manager at Distilled). It’d probably also be remiss of me not to mention the awesome (and mildly NSFW) exclusive discount code from Christmas gifts site prezzybox.
Here are a couple of quick notes from my talk and the slides on our slideboom account:
Finally, we are going to be running more events including 1 day linkbuilding training sessions in London and the US. We’ll have more information coming soon, but if you’d like to make sure you are the first to hear about these and our web training sessions, just drop your email address here:
