#4 The distilled idea
For the last few days I've been working on a pitch deck for my project Ketch Statistics.
Every time I do one of these, I'm reminded at how beneficial the exercise is for distilling your ideas down to what's most important.
My goal is always to communicate as quickly as possible that we are ABC company and we have an idea that does X. Now we'll show it to you and why people need it.
I've also found it is better to be concise even if that shrinks the idea. Big and vague descriptions often seem like fluff. It's okay if your idea is specific and narrow to start. Your objective is to keep the conversation going.
Making ideas simple sure is hard work. How do approach sharing your ideas?
P.S. If you're into folklore and "ghost stories", check out the LORE Podcast.
P.P.S. Late to the game but reading Flash Boys. So good!
P.P.P.S. A lot of the teams I work with are using Slack for internal communication. Found a cool site with a directory of resources to beef up your Slack.
