PowerPoint Specialist and Business Pro
Now available - Microsoft 2016! I use both sides of my brain and blend my creative and technical skills to craft a great PowerPoint presentation.
"From a bunch of bullet lists, Wendy created a great PowerPoint presentation loaded with color and graphics"
"Wendy was a delight to work with! Excellent communication, timely, and funny, to boot! Would highly recommend to anyone."
"Wendy was a delight to work with, yet again. Quick turn around, great communication, and solid work. I plan on working with her again and would recommend her to anyone!"
"Wendy truly has a talent with power point. She created a great slide deck for us, and matched everything with our specific colors and design. I would recommend her to anyone looking for help with power point, she is terrific, and works hard to match what you need."
I am a PowerPoint specialist; both back-end (Master Slide Deck) and the front-end (the Presentation). I am a retired management consultant who specialized in business process and organizational improvement. Working exclusively from home now, I love to share my knowledge and I do this by being an on-line instructor for a major college, teaching a variety of business classes. I have a great deal of experience creating and writing Business Plans; I understand business so I can identify the touch-points you need to share with your team, investor or client. I LOVE PowerPoint!
I have an impressive took-kit of graphics, illustrations and icons ready to be adapted and branded for you. If I don't have what you need to tell the story, I will create it.
Have you ever watched a PowerPoint presentation where you were distracted - even for a moment - when the title of the slide was in a different position on each page? The ink color changed, as did the font, this one had square bullets, the next were check boxes - there was no consistency in the design? This table was nicely formatted, the next slide had an excel auto-generated pie chart? I can end that!
Being a PowerPoint user since 1999 I know the benefits of creating a robust Master Slide Deck; the back-end! It is often referred to as a template, which it is, but it is also so much more. When I craft a MSD, the client will have an array of layouts, perfectly formatted to the existing brand, or new design. No less than 20 different slide layouts will be prepared for you. When you need to introduce a new slide to your Presentation or start a new one, you wont have to spend your time starting with a white canvas, adding your content and then formatting it, hopefully to match the others. Instead you can click on the pull-down menu and select a layout from your own MSD collection to insert your content. And then again for the next slide, and again - always being able to select the one perfect formatted and branded layout to best display your content. Need to insert Smart Art, or a table, a chart? You can, and it will automatically match your existing theme. Do you frequently use the same boring layout in your presentations? Do you copy Slide 1 - erase the content and make Slide 2, and 3, and 4? Not anymore, I will create a unique slide layouts for you - or me, to enter your content. Let's banish the bullets whenever we can.
When the back-end is done, I can then start working on your Presentation (or maybe that is all you needed!)
Need a flat design with white background, your logo and some shading? Perfect!
Need more pizazz? A bit of depth, dramatic colors or animation? Do you need info-graphics? I will take care of it! Make sure you take a look at the Video by <clicking> the link attached to this Overview

As a designer, I will use all my ABILITIES to pull it all together into an informative, concise, and visually pleasing document. As a writer, I can use my SKILLS to enhance and clarify your message.
