November’s Free Prezi template gives you lots of choices! It’s designed as an ‘Overlap’ template to illustrate areas in your message that are interlinked. It also has movement, flow and progression, adding momentum to your presentation. To use this template with our 3 Act Structure you can use the gold boxes for an introduction and conclusion; 3 acts in the circles […]

I’ve been blogging for about 8 years now. It’s been great fun.  I’ve built a global reputation and it’s helped me build my consulting business into a truly international outfit- though we’re still a small company. In the early days of the web there was a generosity of spirit about bloggers, we were a community, that […]

5 fixes to common presentation technology mistakes

October 9, 2014

In our previous post I owned up to making a short cut in my preparation and had a technical malfunction in a high-profile pitch at a world-class business school. I did rescue the situation and all ended a) well and b) getting paid, but I got lazy, took a risk and it nearly caught me […]

I was working with some brilliant Grads at a global investment bank last week. Paolo was as handsome, charismatic and imposing a 22 year old as you’re ever likely to meet. He was a technically skilled speaker- He had a point, he wrote clear text for speech, his articulation in English was excellent, he looked confident, but […]

Free Prezi Template – August

August 1, 2014

I really like this Prezi Template, as it’s flexible and can be used for meetings, mind-mapping and agendas, as well as a presentation. It is quite informal and lends itself well to the ‘hand-written’ fonts in Prezi. There are areas to use in portrait or landscape layouts, and the blue ‘stickers’ work well as information points, tips […]
