Is your presentation stale? Too many contributors over the years? Lost its focus? Badly formatted? I can pull it back into shape.
Microsoft’s PowerPoint has become a replacement term for “presentation”, in much the same way that Hoover interchanges with vacuum-cleaner. There’s no denying that in its most recent incarnation it’s a powerful business tool.
I’ve been dealing with PowerPoint since its inception in 1990, becoming qualified in the mid-90s as a Microsoft Presentation Centre Expert. I can create presentations from scratch, eschewing the standard templates to tailor schemes to suit your corporate identity. I also bring to bear my language skills, so I can streamline and tweak any content you supply – ensuring that when you present in front of 5 or 500 people your delivery is aided by a presentation that is audience-friendly, punchy and highlights your USPs.
Simplicity is key – overloading a presentation with information is the surest way to lose the audience. It follows that any graphic scheme employed should be equally as simple as the content – too much bling is a bad thing! Moreover, the content should not be a copy of the presenter’s script. It should be a summarised version complete with pictures and diagrams that support the speaker’s words.
Too often PowerPoint files are created that fail to use the built-in easy formatting controls; become unwieldy and large; or worse of all, lose all corporate identity – I can spend from just a few hours upwards pulling things back into shape. You’ll get back a file that will be much easier to use and deploy.
Not sure? Simply zap your current PPT file to me as an email and I’ll give you a frank opinion on it, and suggest improvements if I can – complete with a time and cost estimate if applicable. Need something creating from the ground up? Call me in – we’ll discuss your immediate and future presentation requirements and organise a package appropriate to your mission.
