Ann Handley

As you might expect from the best-selling author of Everybody Writes, Ann Handley’s Slideshares are an engaging mix of content strategy and personal empowerment. They are also hugely accessible, since she has the habit of sharing a couple of slides whenever a compelling thought strikes. Her Formula for Innovative Content is a great example.
