Simply Said
Simply Said is the essential handbook for business communication.

Business Context

You are pitching to a client and sharing a deck outlining your proposal. The discussion goes well. But the client is spending more time flipping through the deck than engaging with you. Is the presentation helping you or distracting them? Is it a struggle to balance the materials you share and the client conversations you lead?

Challenge & Solution

As a professional, how can you consistently deliver a clear message through compelling visuals– and avoid death by Power Point? Both in delivery and design, your goal is to give the client two ways of understanding your approach: first, through the conversation and, second, through the materials. If either one gets neglected, your impact diminishes. That’s why using proven techniques to visualize and clarify your presentations are essential to convey complex ideas.

Exec-Comm’s Crafting High-Impact Presentations program teaches you how to develop your ideas and use design concepts to create compelling decks.
