Consider this story . . .
“That’s just dumb,” said the Marketing VP.
I was at a conference table with several managers; two were in a heated fight.
They were arguing about the wording on a PowerPoint slide. Bullet #3, slide #27.
“Can I offer an opinion?” I asked. They had invited me to this meeting, after all, to consult.
“The wording of bullet #3,” I said, “doesn’t matter. You’ve got 62 slides in this deck. No one will remember any of these bullets.”
That stopped the fight. They no longer hated each other. Now they hated me.
. . .
Well, that’s the problem with PP slides: they’re easily forgotten. Not so with stories.
