Just got home from speaking at the kickoff of the Lean Startup Conference, where 15 speakers had 5 minutes each to present 20 slides.

No, but seriously, folks. It actually turned out to be a very fun and energizing format with a lot of great presentations. My presentation was called “Lean Your Marketing” and looked at how lean principles like testing in small batches and giving much respect to measurement are exactly the kinds of skills startup marketers need. For those who have asked for a copy of my presentation, I put it up on SlideShare, so enjoy. Although given that each slide consists of a funny picture and a few words, not sure how much use the actual slides will be. Feel free to drop me a line if you have more questions about the topic.
