The Eyeful Blog
You might be looking for pithy sales presentation best practice or the very latest thinking on PowerPoint design. If it’s presentation related, chances are you’ll find it on our blog (we’ve even made it searchable to make it quicker and easier to access the good stuff).
Presentation storytelling, PowerPoint design, and conference presentation management take time. So what happens when you are asked to deliver the impossible? We call it ‘eating an elephant’, and when you are as obsessed with business presentations as we are, it all falls into place naturally.
The purpose of presentation design is to act as visual punctuation to your story and content. No matter how clever the presentation design technology, your deck isn’t much without the basic presentation building blocks (audience, message, content, call to action). No story? No content? No point in presentation design.
Sometimes things don’t go to plan. It might be a bid, internal comms strategy, or marketing campaign, but while you’ve only just started, you’re already playing catch up! Do you bury your head in the sand or dig deep and reinvigorate your project? Find out how we helped a client do the latter and exceed expectations.
Pride comes from within; it’s acknowledging the struggles of the people who fought for our rights to love and seeing where we need to go to achieve equality for everyone across the globe.
What do audiences want? Great presentation storytelling or nice Powerpoint design? Ideally both, but the rise of ‘Slide Farms’ could tip the scales in the wrong direction. Are they feeding the PowerPoint Monster at the cost of audience engagement?
For quite some time now, I have gotten a bizarre yet very specific kick out of setting myself personal challenges that charities can benefit from. I like the challenges that make people’s faces screw up when you tell them what you are doing –
Presentations are so much more than fancy design and a great presentation company is made up of people who are experts in more than one field…We have incredible storytellers, market leading presentation designers, not forgetting amazing presentation skills trainers. Welcome to Eyeful Presentations.
Sales & Pitch presentations are interesting beasts. Get them right, and you feel like a Superhero; get them wrong, and you can feel the ground swallowing you up. The team here at Eyeful Presentations want to help you make this the year of improving your skillset (as well as your mindset).
Present To Succeed, a global conference that features the great and the good from the Presentation sector. Learn more about this important event and how to join the thousands of attendees by following the links on the page.
We’re all influenced by fashion (yes, even me). The world of presentations is not immune to the vagaries of fashion. Presentation technology fads come and go with remarkable frequency. Prezi is perhaps the highest-profile of these – its impact on presenters burned bright for some time.
I think it is fair to say we’ve all had enough Zoom meetings. So, if you’re going to share a recording of your meeting.. step away from this tired format. But if the content is valuable, surely it deserves to be captured and shared in the highest quality possible?
Presentation folk like a chat. Given half a chance to talk about the power of storytelling, valuable visuals and or exciting new tech, we can talk for hours. However, a recent podcast conversation with Boris Hristov, the brain behind the upcoming Present To Succeed conference, was a little different.
It’s always a pleasure to share customer success stories. After all, the best people to talk about the impact of our presentation services are the very people we have helped. However, this particular success story goes beyond a hearty slap on the back for our content and ppt design teams. Read on to find out more.
International Women’s Day is a time to reflect on progress made, to call for change and to celebrate acts of courage and determination by ordinary women all across the globe. Here at Eyeful it is important for us to acknowledge and recognise the power and importance of these women/girls.
It’s amazing where you find inspiration. The last few soggy weekends have found me digging deep into Amazon Prime, where I happened across a documentary celebrating the Nashville songwriting community. Songs like ‘A Little Less Conversation’ and ‘Whiskey Lullaby’? Read on..
We’ll be the first to acknowledge that the phrase ‘Content is King’ has become a little trite. For decades, we and companies like Eyeful have extolled the virtues of crafting content that connects and drives action from audiences. And it’s paid huge dividends for our customers because, when done well, content plays a vital role in moving customer engagements from the transactional to a more consultative, trust-based relationships. Everyone wins.
Like me, you’re probably bored of people talking about the seismic changes experienced by the business world over the last 12 months. Phrases like ‘new normal’ and ‘unprecedented times’ now bounce off me so readily that I don’t even notice them. But some things really have changed forever.
I’m a funny shape. My long torso and short legs have been the bane of my life for many reasons, including finding a suit that fits. I don’t want (or, frankly, need) a bespoke suit crafted from scratch by the finest tailors of the land, but equally, anything I chose...
2020 was tough – very tough – for many. But it also prompted us to reappraise the way we work, from turning sales processes on their heads to forcing a rethink of traditional marketing strategies almost overnight. Old rules had to be broken and, truth be told, many have benefited from taking a fresh new approach to engagement. Chances are we’re unlikely to ever return to the ‘old way of doing things’.
The latest in our ‘In Conversation’ videos features the brilliant presentation coach and author, Caroline Goyder. You may know Caroline from her immensely popular TED Talk (8.6 million views and counting), her best selling books or you even may have been lucky enough...
