Here at SlideShare, we can clearly see the influence that popular presentations have on the greater SlideShare audience to further explore ideas and concepts. Taking an existing presentation to the next level, either creatively or intellectually, inspires interaction and gives new momentum to the original content.
Bruce Gabrielle recently uploaded this presentation which he embedded in his very popular blog post, 5 Tips For Presenting to Executives. Bruce’s slideshow caught the attention of Dirk Hannemann of Berlin, Germany who then built upon the presentation’s salient points and created a video of his own.
Thankfully, the days of closely guarded content are nearly gone. Bruce was flattered that his slideshow provided inspiration for continued exploration. So much so that he posted a follow-up article on his own blog, sharing Dirk’s video with his audience.
