PowerPoint and its Apple cousin, Keynote, are ubiquitous, which is a fancy word meaning that they bore the pants off us wherever we go.
It’s said that Americans make 2 million PowerPoint presentations every week. Studies show that most people think their presentations are very good and everyone else’s are terrible. Which means a lot of us are fooling ourselves.
The point is, whether you are making a pitch to investors, trying to close a sale, or speaking at a conference, the stakes are high. A great presentation can bring money and supporters to your cause. One that flames out means you’ve lost a golden opportunity.
I love making slide presentations that are beautiful and effective. It’s fun, it’s satisfying – and it gives my clients a competitive advantage to be among the few who use slides to inform and inspire audiences instead of putting them to sleep.
My slide work has won awards and was featured in the book Presentation Zen. More importantly, it’s given my clients the confidence they need to get the job done.
There are two basic ways to get my help:
- Starting from scratch or with an existing set of slides, I create a beautiful slide deck that will make you look brilliant.
- If you want everyone in your organization to be presentation masters, I am available for workshops and design sessions.
