Power Hour #2: Innovators

From client meeting to presentation

From client meeting to presentation


If you expect to read how you’re going to get the key on building an amazing presentation, well, hold your horses, because we’re not going to spill the beans that easily. We do want to explain which steps we take from the first meeting with a client up to the final product though.


The first client meeting

When we meet our client for the very first time, it’s usually one of our Account Managers and our founder Pieter hitting the road. We get to know the client and the client gets to know us. We explain our services and dive into the idea of the client and the purpose of the presentation. In some cases the client already has a preference for a specific presentation tool, if not we brainstorm about the best solution during the kickoff.


Kickoff

Next is the kickoff with the team, sometimes this is with the client and sometimes it’s an internal meeting. We involve everyone that is part of the project team, so that we are up to speed and ready to rock!  


Building the framework

When the client has sent over all the necessary information for the presentation, our creative director starts to create a storyline by building a framework. Which information should be in the presentation and - more importantly - where? It’s all about creating a logical path and narrative for the target audience.

Building this can be quite chaotical, since there are printouts everywhere which need to be put into logical order, there are drawn structures on whiteboards and sometimes everything needs to be restructured again.


Designing

When the process of building a framework is coming to a final stage, the designer comes into action (and sometimes already earlier depending on the deadline). The designer first defines a style for the presentation, if necessary; sometimes we receive a full brand guide, sometimes it’s only a website for reference. After that we create a concept that shows the ‘flow’ and the look and feel the presentation will have. Depending on the budget of the client, the presentation can get as crazy as you want, for example by adding animations, voice-over, personalized photography or even film. Everything we create is custom made. Eventually we build the entire presentation based on the input and wishes the client has.


Review time

In between and during the different stage we review our work with the team to ensure everyone is on board and understands the choices which individual team members have made. With the client we also have two moments to review our work. An important review moment, is for instance the visual concept. The rest of the presentation will be developed based on this style, getting approval on the visual concept therefore is very important.

Once we start creating the complete deck, we have some scheduled review time with the team and also with the client to check if we’re all on the same page. When we’re all happy with the final product, we deliver it to the client.
