3 Non Obvious Ways to Improve your Slide Deck

Let's face it: we've all seen slides that suck. Business meetings, sales pitches, conferences, you name it, someone brought a terrible deck with poor colour contrast and tons of text, maybe written in Papyrus or C**** S***. Luckily those days seem to be over, or at least close to their end. At the last conferences I've …

My talk at the Surf Office meetup in London

I've recently spoken at the Surf Office meetup in London. Surf Office is one of the most famous remote working-related experiments out there: it's a place that combines workspace, accommodation and surf, with currently three locations (Gran Canaria, California, Lisbon). If you're one of those human beings that can work from anywhere, or if your …

WordCamp Sofia: My talk and slides

Last WordCamp of the year, for me, in Sofia (Bulgaria). Here's the video of my talk. The feedback I received was remarkably positive, people were interested on the subject and follow up a lot afterwards on social media and email.

The one rule to get better at public speaking

So you want to get started with public speaking, huh? One year ago I was at the same point. Did I have something to share? Yes. Did I have an audience? Maybe, big cities have enough meetups. Was public speaking really that scary? More than death. During 2015 (and my entire life) I've given nine talks. …

Hello, public speaking. So nice to meet you.

Do you know when you take a look back at the resolutions you've made before the year kicked off and then realise you've failed them all? I've lost the count of how many times it happened to me. I think we're pretty close to 30. Anyway, this year I've decided to do things seriously. Instead of making a silly list with …

If you have read the Ep.1 of this Equipment List series you how much I care about having a minimalist workspace. If this is possible, it’s thanks to the following awesome apps. Enjoy!

Franz Vitulli’s Equipment List Ep.1: The Marketing Specialist

Anyone who knows me knows that I'm a big fan of minimalism in all things, and certainly my workstation doesn't make an exception. As I work from home I could have easily built a massive battlestation with multiple screens, super stereo system and other awesome tools, but I prefer a setup that can be the same, regardless of …

It’s WordCamp Europe time, again!

Less than one week and I will be in Sofia, the capital and largest city of Bulgaria. I know, you too are thinking Bulgaria! That's quite an unusual destination isn't that? like all my friends did. In all fairness it is, but if anything the unusualness only adds extra excitement and enthusiasm. Why am I going to Sofia? Let's take …
