Working with Captivate Presentations
How do you work?
For a typical CREATE project we usually work via online meetings and conference calls. A CAPTIVATE (for sales presentations) is mainly made up of face-to-face sessions. However, we do this remotely if preferred. Our process gives you an overview of a typical project.
Can you teach me to become a better presenter?
We’d love to. In fact, we have a whole course dedicated to making you a killer presenter. All the information for our presentation training can be found here.
Which presentation service should I use?
We offer four core services to help you create a winning presentation. If you are looking for your slides to be re-designed, we would recommend our CREATE service. We also offer CRISIS, which is essentially CREATE in 24 hours or less.
If you are looking for help with creating a sales presentation (including assistance with the crystallisation of your key messages and the structure of your presentation) our CAPTIVATE service would be ideal.
For large-value bids or tenders (typically over £1 million) we recommend using our CONQUER.
Do you know my industry?
Our team have worked within multiple industries in many different scenarios. If we’re not subject-matter experts within your field our team will help you deliver a creative & effective presentation by applying Design, Logic & Science.
You know your business; our job is to help you articulate that clearly in a presentation.
What clients do you currently work with? Can I get a reference from them?
We’ve worked with hundreds of clients in the past, and most of them have become repeat customers. Household names and big brands such as American Express, Nestlé, Moody’s Investor Services, Bosch, and Burtons Biscuits choose to use us. SME’s like Verto Homes, Datel and Thomas International also love us, along with charitable organisations like The Scouting Association and Oxfam.
What versions of PowerPoint do you support? Do you only work with PowerPoint?
We work across PowerPoint, Keynote and Prezi. We can accommodate any version of PowerPoint from 2003 onwards (on either Mac, PC or iPad).
Can you create Presentations for iPad/tablets?
We can! As standard we provide you with an optimised version of your presentation for your chosen tablet.
Working on a Project
Will this take up much of my time?
No. We do need your commitment to content and review sessions, but we don’t need our hand held. We are here to make life easy.
How long will a project take?
Our typical delivery time for a bespoke presentation using our CREATE service is 3–5 days. Our CAPTIVATE service (for sales presentations) usually takes around 2 weeks, but we could deliver it a lot sooner if needed. Our CRISIS service offers express delivery of slides within 24 hours.
Will your work still be creative whilst adhering to our brand guidelines?
Very much so. We have extensive experience of working with many different businesses and understand the importance of adhering to your branding. We’d only ever go off brand if you asked.
Design & Branding
Do you have any presentation examples?
We do! Our latest showreel can be viewed here along with examples of our previous work. If you’re still not sure if this approach is right for your business, we’d love to provide you with a free bespoke sample of your current presentation.
Can we edit the slides?
Everything you will receive from us is fully editable; we’d only ever lock down content if you asked.
Can you help us create our own slides?
We can indeed – however, we wouldn’t recommend it. You should focus on your business, not be tied down with creating slides: that’s our job. However, if you still want to make your own slides, take a look at presentation training.
We design slides ourselves. Why should we use you?
We’re not just designers, we are experts in building creative and effective presentations. We look at the message and structure of your presentation. We do this day in, day out. We have spent years in this field working out what works, what doesn’t, and how to get results for our clients. We want you to focus on your business, not be tied down with creating slides: that’s our job.
