“Approachable and empowering”
“Stephanie has accomplished something quite elusive to many. She makes ￼the whole idea of putting PowerPoint/Keynote presentations together approachable and empowering on a scale of simple that I can relate to with great enthusiasm. I particularly liked her specific recommendations for images, fonts and simple design for the non-designer. She proves why those standard themes are so not up to the task of getting your points across in a compelling way… and more importantly, how you can do it yourself in a much better way.”

‘Enlightening, logical and highly effective’
“I recently had a presentation to construct for a South Island Primary Industry Conference. What started off as an overwhelming task became a simple exercise, with the use of Steph’s “Presentations that rock”.
Steph’s unique way of relaying information and instructions broke the task down into a process of logical steps that included critical thinking about purpose and outcome components as Key to the presentation structure.
The easy to follow book answered all the questions I had raised in my head, and kept me focused on the purpose of my presentation.
The book highlights key points, such as keeping visual PowerPoint information simple, yet interesting. This ensures audience attention is maintained, without being bombarded with all the information we are tempted to throw at them.
Seemingly small things like how to integrate pictures into a power point for maximum impact I found very useful.
With the help of a display board and post-it notes, I was able to quickly get an idea of the bones of what I wanted to include in my presentation, leaving the last few steps of sitting at the computer to construct the power point a breeze.
Thanks so much Steph for this enlightening, logical and highly effective book.”

“Engaging, clearly set out and easy to follow.
“All I can say is THANK YOU! Your eBook – Presentations That Rock, couldn’t have come at a better time.
I have been reading (or trying to read) other information about constructing PowerPoints but none have been so engaging, clearly set out and easy to follow. I love the way you led me through it with engaging headings on each paragraph and there wasn’t TOO MUCH information in each one. For someone who resists reading detailed info off the computer screen, this E-Book is perfect.
One of the most valuable things I got from it was that the focus be on your audience with a view to encouraging participation therefore giving them something practical and relevant they can take away to use straight-away. For me that makes the difference between a really worthwhile workshop and one that leaves me not feeling sure what I got from it.
Of course your usual lovely humour comes through and that also helps keep you engaged.
