You need to wow your audience with a presentation that's understandable, memorable and actionable - but you don't know where to start.

Action-oriented Decks

We’ve all been there. You’re sitting through a meeting, counting down the seconds with a presentation deck gone wrong: Endless bullet points, story overload, confusing jargon, irrelevant stock photos, uninspiring graphs, unclear calls to action, and distracting inconsistencies.


Disjointed and poorly designed presentations are a huge missed opportunity that lead to an unengaged and uninterested audience.


In this course I will teach you how to build persuasive presentations that engage and persuade, and set you up for success:


STORYTELLING

How to craft a clear and engaging story that resonates with your audience, and is understandable, memorable and actionable.


DESIGN

How to use design and visuals to support your narrative and objective(s), improve understanding and retention of core messages, and boost credibility).
