Advanced Stickynoting

Duarte Blog

If you have followed this blog or read slide:ology , you know that we are huge fans of sticky notes. We train people how to build effective presentations by writing their main points on sticky notes and then moving them around until they find a compelling flow for their message. Sticky notes are small, easily movable and readily recyclable. They are our friends! And, we don’t just prescribe them for others, we use them here, too!

I got my ticket punched here at a local and that was that in terms of academic degrees for me." " That's what a 30-something millionaire Boston entrepreneur spouted three summers ago.

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

  The reality of many advanced educational programs is that no one knows what the manpower demand will be upon completion.   Investing in advanced degrees can be risky business. In the overall economy job creation crushed it at 312,000. At 1:19 P.M. Eastern Time, the Dow is up over 700 points. But legal services remains a troubled sector in terms of manpower demand.
