Powerpoint at Amazon

November 18, 2013

David Nenke was here from Amazon today, speaking to our MBA1’s in Paulson. He started by telling us how they use Powerpoint. They don’t. They write memos, 10-point type, small margins, packed with information. As he said, it can be harder to write 6 pages than 30, but the example he showed us was a work of art. He also gave a great sales pitch for working at Amazon. Glenn Okun and I were tempted to pack our bags and head to Seattle, but I don’t think they’re ready for us.
