Slide decks, done well

Slides have become the default format for business documents: strategies, delivery approaches, operating models and so on. All of these are likely to be PowerPoint decks.
But does your standard style work well enough when you have a complex message to convey? Do the people reading your material find it easy to interpret the content? And most importantly: will they remember the key points you need them to?

Let SHARPN help you

The most compelling slides — the ones that pack a real punch – are actually very simple. Even when they are explaining a nuanced, complicated situation. We have expertise in communicating the heart of the matter – so your slides can pack a real punch.
You'll get clean layouts without informational 'noise'. And visual cues that signpost themes and underline your meaning. And because we are experienced in talking about the complicated ideas you need to get across, we can help you shape the message.
We will help you produce documents that cut through the complexity. Your stakeholders will thank you for that.
Steve helped us pull together a number of decks to engage senior stakeholders with some of our most important global programmes.
Steve is a pleasure to work with and the standard of his output is very high. He can easily engage with a variety of complicated business and technical discussions – and then distil the essence into a deck that communicates the key points clearly and effectively. Plus he is outcome-driven and great at working to deadlines and budgets.

Steve is an insightful and valuable thought partner. His years of experience as a senior consultant means he offers value far beyond visual communications expertise. He knows what simple yet deep questions to ask, gently provoking thought, to help critically review the matter at hand. He really helps one see things differently. His advice added great value to our performance strategy implementation plans.
Steve took a complex subject and in just a couple of conversations was able to translate this into a remarkably accessible graphic. This translated a multi-layered strategic framework into one simple visual that would quickly make sense to different audiences. He is considerate and patient with the complexities that organisations can face and the iterations that can occur before one arrives at a resolution.
An absolute pleasure to work with!
