50 Million Prezi Users: Conversation with Scott Kabat

Scott KabatScott Kabat is CMO at Prezi. He is passionately committed to growing and engaging a global community of diehard Prezi enthusiasts. When he's not taking orders from his young kids, Scott spends his free time doing various endurance sports, reading history, ranting about the dysfunctional state of American politics, and wasting critical brain space by filling it with obscure movie quotes.

In this conversation, Scott discusses Prezi now encompassing more than 50 million users.

Geetesh: Prezi has become a hugely popular presentation platform with 50 million plus users. What does this popularity or these numbers mean to you?

Scott: When Peter, HP, and Adam started Prezi back in 2009, they embarked on a mission to empower people around the world to share their ideas in an engaging, compelling way. Over the years, the Prezi community has grown, and we are so thankful to everyone who has joined us on this journey.

Even more inspiring than the numbers, though, are the stories behind them, from the classroom to the boardroom. There's the story of Miranda Wang and Jenny Yao, two high school seniors who discovered a strain of bacteria that can break down plastic waste and presented their revolutionary findings at TED with a Prezi. There's Robert, who leads mobile strategy at Salesforce and uses Prezi to inspire audiences and teach them about his company’s mobile offerings—after switching from slides to Prezi, he's seen a 28% increase in audience satisfaction in the surveys he conducts after each presentation.



These stories—along with the numbers behind them—motivate us to continue making Prezi better than ever, so that we can help everyone currently in our community and many millions more continue to engage, delight, and inspire audiences with their ideas.

Geetesh: Whereas most presentation programs tried to become clones of established programs that used the slide metaphor, Prezi did this differently – do you believe that’s one of the reasons for Prezi’s success? Tell us more.

Scott: Absolutely. Slide-based software has remained the same for the last thirty years. We and our growing community of users believe that it’s time for a change.

Prezi allows you to show the relationship between your ideas. Instead of moving from slide to slide, you can put your ideas in context and take your audience on a visual journey. As a result, your presentations are far more engaging and memorable—something that we hear all the time from our growing community.

At the end of the day, presenters care about being successful, whether that means winning the pitch, impressing the boss, or inspiring the room. We want to help anyone giving a presentation feel more confident and effective. The Prezi movement is growing, and we’re thrilled to see so many people empowered to share their ideas in a way that gets the job done.
