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.
