PowerPoint Mastery: how to create a successful pitch deck
Wednesday, 24th October 2018
9.30am – 1pm
A three-hour workshop for those who need to build compelling presentations for use inside or outside the business.
This is a unique proposition, as unlike other training courses, there are two trainers, not one. Both Andy’s have vast experience in the toughest of content markets, think on their feet and are highly skilled at engaging with delegates from all levels.
The seven modules are all focused on just one goal – how to frame the story, focus the benefit and win over the room.
1. Pitch deck clinic
2. Five principles
3. How to build it
4. Fix this slide
6. Backstop templates
7. Pitch the room
All the modules are interactive, including two substantial hands-on sessions. There’s also plenty of original content.
Controlling the through-line.
One idea per slide - uninterrupted clarity of thought
Write like a storyboard – just a few words per frame
Why each slide is an image, as stepping stone to a new thought
How to get commitment from your audience
The pitcher is on trial, not the pitch
How to anticipate the next question
Do your research – key insight- National lottery Camelot example
How to write – team you need, time to do it
One strong but simple idea at the heart of everything
Think playwright not actor - theatre not information
A story from problem to solution
Make the problem sound REALLY bad
The bigger the problem, the more valuable the solution.
