Slides and Scripts

Click to see larger image. Must stay awake...Organizations, especially non-profits, often spend far more than necessary to create an effective presentation. A simple PowerPoint with a solid script and appealing images has the advantage of total flexibility. If you want to add something, you can do it.

If your situation (your campaign goal, for example) changes tomorrow, you can update the show quickly and easily. Funders will appreciate your frugality, staff will appreciate the simple production process, and you'll have money left over to spend on something else.

Can I produce a full-blown video with music, voices and sound effects that rise and fall? Sure, and I've done plenty of them, but for most purposes, you probably don't need all that jazz.

PowerPoint Makeovers

One client comes to mind who needed to impress a grant-making board of major donors who had seen it all and weren't easily swayed, to say the least. He knew his slides weren't going to do the job. We worked together to make them better. A few days later he walked out of that presentation with the biggest grant the funders had ever given.
