If I had a dollar for every time I've heard someone use the words innovation or disruption in a boardroom or conference venue in the last ten years, I'd have 0.892 bitcoin. Sadly, there is an inverse correlation between the number of people who talk about innovation and disruption, and the number of people who actually innovate and disrupt...

Richard Mulholland, the founder and owner of innovative presentations-strategy firm Missing Link, is becoming something of a guru in new-media circles, mostly on account that his business is proof of the success that can come from thinking out of the box. (Lord knows, many wrestling with where old and new media intersect could do with a bit of that!) Bizcommunity talks to him about innovation, problem solving and the challenges facing the South African media.

Once upon a time, in a land far, far away, there was a big company called Hamelin. An evil witch came to the land and cursed the big company: "If you don't create some presentations/animate some adverts/make the corner of your logo curvy (pick applicable), everyone will have to work in dull cubicle farms for the rest of time."

A throw-away comment from Richard Mulholland, “We live in a pimple in the arse end of Africa,” in his hysterical presentation on the side effects of Social Media at Net Prophet 2010, really got me thinking…and I hope too, the 800-odd entrepreneurs, developers, investors and marketers attending.

Surprisingly, considering the time and effort that goes into everything else, a conference really is just a series of sequential presentations designed to fulfil a specific objective (read parts one and two). Now as nerdy as that sounds, it's the truth. So in this, the third and final article in the "your conference sucks" series, I'm going to focus on the sad bastard that is "the PowerPoint presentation".
Richard Mulholland 1 Feb 2010
In my first article on this subject, I focused on why conferences suck and what we need to do about it (adhere to our objectives). In this article, I will talk about some of the techniques we use to make our conferences kick more ass than yours.

I'm often asked what the difference is between a small business owner and an entrepreneur. To me it's simple - small business owners are driven by love and/or expertise in their chosen field; entrepreneurs look at that field from the outside and say, "This sucks; I think I can do it better." I'm an entrepreneur in the presentation and conference space, and I can safely say that it sucks.

"Creativity is not our job!" says Missing Link MD Richard Mulholland. Tell that to the client who visits Missing Link's Northriding offices in Johannesburg for the first time, only to discover that the reception area is a mock-up loo. Yup, that's right, to get into the office, you have to walk through a bathroom complete with toilet, urinal, basin and an empty loo roll. Not your bog standard presentation company.
