What's with modern businesses' dependence on presentation software? Why are 30 million decks being prepared EVERY DAY, when slides have proven to be the least effective method for selling in ideas? There’s a science to the dependency, and when you understand it, you can overcome it. Instead of slides, let’s build something powerful and lasting. Let’s stir our audiences emotionally, by crafting provocative narratives based on familiar patterns. Let’s leave mindless decks of data in our dust, and start telling stories that stick.


Eric Harris, Founder of GatherRound

Eric started GatherRound after his experience in brand- and agency-side leadership roles exposed him to a frightening phenomenon: The pervasive reliance on presentation software for communicating and attempting to sell in ideas. Eric believes presentations deserve more respect, because the better we are at selling in, the more cool stuff we’ll get to do. So Eric and his team invented and now teach The Campfire Method for presentation training. Since 2015, Eric has had the privilege of coaching enlightened teams – at organizations such as Activision, The Marketing Arm, and YUM! Brands – who know storytelling and leadership are synonyms
