How Do Consultants Use Your PowerPoint Services?
Consultants use PowerPoint to communicate plans, models, ideas and more. It is a great tool for them to speed up and enrich the transfer of concepts, vision, strategies and action steps. Using charts, graphs and diagrams can make complex ideas much easier to understand. This is assuming the slides are well made. Creating well made PowerPoint slides like the below is difficult and time consuming.
Some independent consultants create their own PowerPoint presentations but this is like a doctor in surgery without a nurse or a Formula-1 driver changing his own tires. Smaller firms and independent consultants are discovering our services. Large consulting firms have an in-house team of professionals.
Why do Consultants need quick PPT Services?
Consultants are almost always in a hurry and need next day or 24 hour turn around service. They send us instructions at the last minute and want us to deliver the completed PowerPoint presentation the next day. It is probably the nature of the consulting business to get a presentation ready only ‘just in time’. We are glad we can provide them this valuable service. Consultants usually don’t have the time to develop a professional and polished PowerPoint presentation. Furthermore, laying out a visually appealing Powerpoint presentation is not the best use of their time or skill sets. They come to us because we can help refine their PowerPoints while they focus on the most important stuff. With our overnight service, we can do the tedious, highly skilled chunk of their work. We work behind the scenes so they are prepared for their presentation.
Large consulting firms generally have an in-house team of PowerPoint professionals. We are happy to fill this gap for smaller consulting firms who don’t want the headache and extra expense of extra employees. We get plenty of praise from such consulting firms who say we are important to their success.
What can you do that I can’t do myself?
Because we work with PowerPoint day in and day out we know the tricks and can exploit the potential of PowerPoint. Our team is driven daily by deadlines forcing us to become highly skilled. It is like playing the violin- Years of practice makes us good.
What software do you use?
Primarily, we use Microsoft PowerPoint. We also use Excel, Word and OneNote depending on the project. For design projects we use Adobe products especially InDesign.
What do you have in common with Dell?
When you work with us, you are dealing directly with the people doing the work. There is no middleman. Consider the example of Dell. Dell cut out the middle-man too. This is how Dell provides value. We too cut out the middle man and are able to give you greater value. Some companies work differently by giving you the impression they are doing the work but they are just middlemen. Your project may end up going to another company doing the production. The middle company adds a fee and then outsources the work. When you deal directly with us you get more value.
My company has Style Guidelines can you incorporate them?
No problem at all. We are accustomed to working with style guides. Moreover, for those without clear style guidelines we can even create a custom style and produce a style guideline document for training employees or vendors.
