As a company which serves busy consultants with their PowerPoint presentations, Chillibreeze strives to understand their world. From a small beginning of one or two customers in 2005, we now serve over 300 and many of them keep really busy. Strapped for time, consultants value the support Chillibreeze provides in giving their PowerPoint presentations the final finishing touch. Our team takes the trouble to understand each customer’s needs when it comes to PowerPoint formatting.
Looking at the volume of work that comes in, we can see that PowerPoint is a ‘must have’ in the world of consultants. The world of business has caught on to the uses of PowerPoint. Have you ever wondered why? We came across a very interesting blog post on why consultants use PowerPoint so much. We present here a gist.
- Consultants need to communicate a lot with fewer words: As all business management gurus will tell you, it is important to keep to the point and communicate just the essence to your audience. PowerPoint helps present the important points powerfully with suitable visuals.
- Customers are demanding and strapped for time: Executives to whom consultants need to communicate the outcomes of a project keep really busy. So, they expect the consultants to tell them all there is to hear in a short time and that too clearly! PowerPoint comes to the consultants’ rescue!
- Consultants often need to persuade their audience to take action: Consultants are contracted to solve problems. Hence, persuading their audience to take action based on their recommendations is important. PPT is a good platform to do that.
- Visual communication impact: Consultants use many business diagrams, like the Venn diagram, comparison tables, sales funnel, flow charts etc. to show how they arrived at their recommendation. All these can be presented beautifully in a well-formatted PowerPoint presentation.
