Visualize Creatively in PowerPoint

Up-skill your team in the creative use of Microsoft PowerPoint, data visualization design and visual storytelling. Get the confidence to influence and entertain your audience. It all starts with designing your data well and using storytelling to make it memorable. At the Datalabs Agency, we believe that, in the proper hands, Microsoft PowerPoint could be used for the purposes of good, rather than evil! PowerPoint and those that have used it badly have a lot to answer for…

The Purpose of a PowerPoint Workshop Like This?

This workshop is here to set things right, to train and inspire teams of non-designers in creative data presentations and visual storytelling. We teach the techniques we use in our day-to-day agency life to tell stories will stay in the minds of the audience long after the presentation has ended. Data is believable. With a beautiful, visual story, it’s unbelievable.

CHANGE THE WAY

We focus on the audience, the insights, and the visual story that delivers the message.

Build Data Presentations at Scale

PowerPoint has design capabilities that our data visualization agency uses that most everyday employees don't. That's what we love to show off. These include PowerPoint's ability to style packs with themes. Its abilities to store templates in slide masters, and more. Take a look deeper into the software with us and find workflow efficiencies and a wealth of creativity just below the surface.

Forget Your Organization’s Stale Guidelines for PowerPoint

This Power Point Workshop is designed to provoke attendees, to have them not accept bad design. We show the examples of great business presentations, ones we love and have inspired us. We infuse infographic design styles into our training, as well as give practical tips for setting up or storyboarding the best narrative for your data. Everyone has the ability to design better packs — they just need better teachers.

Incorporate Your Brandguides and Data into Our PowerPoint Workshop

Focus on your brand's color palette, fonts, and themes while working with your very own data.

When was the last time your team reviewed your brand’s design guidelines? Are your PowerPoint decks looking tired or repetitive? If so, we’d love to tailor our training to giving that ‘umph’ and ‘pizazz’ back into your slide designs. We can incorporate a review of your current presentations and lead a discussion with your colleagues about a new visual direction for your company’s slide packs.

Also, we’re ready to use your data in the workshop’s exercises. We can customize the exercises in your PowerPoint workshop to include the information you’re now working with. As professional data visualizers, we’ll give our two cents worth and lead a thought-provoking session on what’s working and what’s not. The result: your PowerPoint designs, processes, and workflows will be exponentially improved at the culmination of this training.
