    PowerPoint Builder and Editor

    United Kingdom - Last active: 8 days ago - Tests: 5 - Portfolio: 14

    You provide the content, I provide the formatting and general edits (grammar, punctuation, reduced wording, etc.) as desired. I wish to utilize my practiced written, interpersonal, and multimedia communication skills to promote services, education, and more. Because of the variety of potential clients, my rate is negotiable. Through my time with Upwork, I have converted Word documents to customized PowerPoint presentations, rebuilt old PowerPoints from the ground up with custom templates, reformatted Word document handouts to correspond to the custom PowerPoint templates, and researched and written text for infographics. I am meticulous in making sure slides are consistent, text is readable and concise, and the templates themselves express the brand of the client in a positive and attractive manner. This includes matching template colors exactly to client logos, incorporating images provided by the client, and developing a pleasing and consistent font scheme. With a BSc in Education and an MA in Museum Studies, I am trained as an educator. Through my professional work, graduate thesis, and my published novel, I have honed a great deal of written communication skills. I organize projects from the beginning and establish and meet deadlines. I created two student manuals from scratch, curriculum guides, and numerous graduate-level and professional multimedia presentations. I use my interests in video production, presentation software, and writing to the benefit of my colleagues and their institutions. As I am living in the United Kingdom while my husband earns his PhD from the University of Aberdeen, I am looking for new and exciting opportunities for online work while I absorb the beauty and history of the old world and care for our 6-month-old son Charlie.
