”I humbly consider these as my most valuable resource
for sustainability champions.”
— Bob Willard —
Bob uses 30-40 slides for typical presentations, based on the audience and time allotted. He selects them from an extensive library of 700 slides that he has built and maintained over 10+ years of talks to hundreds of audiences. A few years ago he realized that his Master Slide Set could help sustainability champions maintain their credibility and save them a ton of redundant research.
Why does Bob consider them his most valuable resource?
1. They summarize his books
All Bob’s books use extensive sidebar figures. The graphic figures from his books and other supportive slides are included in the Sustainability Advantage Slides.
2.They summarize current surveys, articles, books, reports, and other research
Bob subscribes to over a dozen news feeds about what is happening with sustainability in the business community. He summaries their highlights in PowerPoint slides, and footnotes their sources so that interested subscribers can explore the findings further. The slides are a goldmine of topical material to support what’s going on in the business community around sustainability, and why. He speaks to hundreds of audiences and needs to stay current on sustainability trends in the business sector.
3. They are designed to be plagiarized
They are in raw .ppt format, rather than in look-but-don’t-touch .pdf format. You can readily cut-and-paste content from any slide into your preferred presentation template. Many slides are animated so they build gradually when in slide show mode. You can tune that animation appropriately. In fact, you are encouraged to treat the slides as your own, and to share them in any way that is supportive of your efforts as a sustainability champion.
4. They include two typical presentations to help users get started
700 slides can be overwhelming. The opening Table of Contents helps users find topics of interest. Or users can use PowerPoint’s “Find” function to search for a key word. Or they can scan thumbnails of the slides in the Slide Sorter view. To further help users get started, two of Bob’s typical 30- to 40-slide presentations are included. One is on the business case for sustainability strategies (based on The New Sustainability Advantage and The Next Sustainability Wave), and the other is on how to be an effective sustainability change agent (based on The Sustainability Champion’s Guidebook). They use distinctively different templates and provide a helpful framework for all the other backup slides.
A $39 annual subscription entitles you to the latest version of the slides, plus three quarterly updates. Bob is continuously refining, enhancing, and updating the slides. New versions are accompanied with a list of which slides have changed or been added since the previous version. He will do his best to prune each new version to 700 slides (if you are familiar with his writing and frameworks, he likes the number 7).
