Presenting information for maximum impact
Imagine doing documents that people praise and envy. Ones that have clarity and impact and that get results. That impress and influence the Board. Imagine the impact on the rest of your working life.
Imagine no more. See how to transform all your documents and slides. Also, discover “WiT”, Jon’s alternative to bullet points that has three times the impact of bullets.
So, in just one day, learn how to create documents and slides that are better than you could have imagined – and see the rest of your working life become so much more rewarding.
Anyone who prepares documents and slides, from one page notes to lengthy reports, from KPI packs to investment proposals, from spreadsheet printouts to presentation slides. This course will considerably enhance them all.
As an organisation we often drown in KPIs, and we have found it particularly difficult to make sense of our weekly performance results - there are just too many of them, all in different reporting formats. Within just a few days of Jon’s workshop, the team had reworked the key weekly volumes and financials with amazing results. Gone are the myriad of colours, tables and lines, and instead we have a simple, well organised report that tells a story for each key area of our business. Now at last I can see what I am looking for! Transformation in action. Kieran McPolin, Financial Controller - Acting CFO, BT Openreach
I thought that the course overall was excellent and most enjoyable - Mr David Capewell ACMA, Financial Controller, Dowding & Plummer Ltd

Your documents will look inviting and have clarity and impact. You’ll save your readers’ and audience’s time – they’ll understand your work more easily and reach more informed decisions more quickly. So you’ll impress people and get results.
