Every new presentation design project begins with gathering details – the Presentation Design Brief. Troy, Sandra and Nolan talk about what format these each use for their Design Briefs, along with what information is captured for presentation makeover projects.
Join Troy, Sandy and Nolan for their final podcast of 2018, with a fun conversation of reflection on the past year, both the overall presentation industry and our studios. Let’s wrap of 2018!
Presenting is a skill, an art, an act of being courageous and being the focus to a live audience. But, the secret is, the audience does not know your slides, your talking points or what you are going to say. Join an amazing conversation where Troy, Nolan and Sandy are joined by Travis Thomas, author and improv comedian, as we talk about how presenters, like an onstage comedian, need to continue presenting like there are no mistakes – because the audience only knows it was a mistake if you tell them.
All Presentation projects all have parameters; what is needed, when it is needed, who needs to approve, how you will be paid. Project scope can be very simple or very robust. One thing that is almost inevitable, the project scope changes before the final design piece is approved. Join Troy, Sandy, and Nolan as they talk about how they setup project scope, and stories of Project Scope that slowly expanded throughout the project timeline.

Join this conversation about the two components of every presentation; the audience and the presenter. Troy, Nolan and Sandy are joined by Richard Goring of Bright Carbon for a fantastic time talking about visual slide design and finding the balance of content to visuals that is best for both presenter and audience. We coined the term “Presentability” during this podcast to describe the optimal balance.
Join a great conversation with Troy, Sandra and Nolan sharing “PowerPoint Shortcuts”, including keyboard shortcuts, right-click tricks, app setup, faster design, better presenting and anything else that helps us get more done quicker, better or professionally.
Audience Response System, or A-R-S, is a great process of involving an audience in a presentation. It is a way for a presenter, a meeting, or even a classroom to get real-time input from the audience, and display everyone’s answers. For our conversation about ARS we are joined by John Cosgrove of VoiceHive and Ben Andersson as meeting ARS specialist. We talk about software we use, ways we added audience interaction, and ideas for presenters to integrate audience interaction into a presentation.
