The following eight slides are those which you need in your presentation deck. It’s with this combination that my clients have been coming back and saying that yes, this has led to increased audience engagement, interest, and  sales.




  1. Title Slide
  2. The ‘Problem’
  3. ‘Solution’
  4. Why you?
  5. Product Demo
  6. Customer Story
  7. Numbers & Stats
  8. Call to action

With a short PowerPoint presentation deck ( I recommend eight slides),  you have to make every slide count. And this means the title slide too. We all know what they say about first impressions, right? Clear and simple slides have proven to help audiences recall information, and this clarity and simplicity starts with your title slide.



As in our example here, the title slide need only contain our business name or logo and a short descriptive sentence. In the case of below,  set in the centre over a background in our branded colours. We are saying what we do in one sentence. The whole idea here is that we are fully utilizing our first slide. You are not just saying your name, company name, date, venue – people generally know that information already! Now we’ve told our audience who we are and what we do, and this is the best starting point.
