Globe & Mail - Monday, April 28, 1997 By: Jeff Evans

The agency cleverly decided to use Commodore's own multimedia technology to prepare its pitch, hoping to outshine the other agencies making presentations with old-fashioned, static flip charts and overhead transparencies. I used the would-be client's own multimedia computers to create a colourful, computer slide show that fitted on a single floppy disk. The agency went on to wow Commodore management with its obvious mastery of the company's own technology.
