PLEASE NOTE and with the greatest respect: If you are looking for someone to make you 148 slides of bullet-points Lee is NOT your man – but if you want slides designing well and you want your talk to get feedback from a genuine slide expert and professional speaker with over 20 years experience, Lee can and would love to help you. He will make your talk even better.
There is another way to do slides and this is what Lee does best, helping you and your talk shine through.
Before and after, case studies.
This client here, sent Lee the slide on the left and had added clipart and low resolution photos to try and explain her career choices, Lee made the slides much bolder and made them look more professional….
This client had always used his corporate template, Lee helped him simplify his slides to increase the impact of his amazing story. Sometimes another set of eyes is all you need to see things differently.
This client was simply a little over-reliant on bullet points and once they were gone she was able to speak more freely, increasing her talks impact.
Below is an example of a ‘refresh’ not a whole new design…
Change of background and a tweaked photo and font made this slide so much better.
The difference is in placement and choice of colours
Choosing a realistic photo not bad clip art makes the slide more real.
A white background and a little zoom makes it so much more better.
Here’s what people say about Lee and his expertise and design service on Linkedin, many are from other professional speakers too…
“So – the slide set for a coming presentation has been totally turned upside down after seeing @leejackson at work… Loose the boredom folks!”
Jonathan Eastwood Operations Manager at Fujitsu (SFIA Level 5 Senior SDMG)
“Lee is very approachable and friendly, and his advice on how to make a good presentation was very helpful. I also love his book ‘Powerpoint Surgery’ – it really does what it says on the tin and has really helped me turn around my presentation skills.”
Liz Sharkey Assistant Programme Manager at The Challenge
“Lee went to great lengths to understand our business and the outcomes we strived. He then used creative and innovative ways to update our thinking with presentations and messaging. The time we spent with Lee delivered some immediate value outcomes with presentations and helped us understand a firm philosophy which we’ll continue to build from.Since then I have seen improved client feedback and no doubt it has contributed to our businesses upward growth”
Ben Unwin, Senior Business Development Manager at Firmstep
“Lee’s work is excellent. He understands his market, a great speaker and the best way to communicate a point. Every speaker should use his services. It always helps to have a fresh perspective and new ideas. I was delighted with the presentation slides he created for me.”
Claire Young, star of The Apprentice, Entrepreneur Founder and Director School Speakers, Girls Out Loud Director, Enterprise Consultant, Speaker, Writer
“Lee is a REAL expert at how to structure slides for maximum impact. I watched his presentation at the Professional Speaking Association London’s Convention and was amazed about how impact can make a difference on the results and the retention of the audience. A true expert for advice on how to structure slides to make you look a pro”
Derek Arden Negotiation Expert, Author, Speaker, Negotiation Strategist and Motivational Negotiating Trainer NED
“Lee had myself and 100 professional speakers spellbound – which is no easy task. Let’s get all technical here: his timing is spot on and intuitive, his knowledge of the subject is rock solid and practical for anyone who presents and his humour was pitch perfect (I work with the best improvised comedy troupes in the UK and he cracked me up) Lee owned the stage from the start and gave us all a lasting gift. Book him for your event!”
John Cremer Leadership Transformation Speaker
“Lee is a terrific speaker and presenter, and has the insight to show others how to improve dramatically. He is the person I refer people to on using slides, but his skills go way beyond that. I have no hesitation in recommending him as a speaker with great content and brilliant humour.”
Alan Stevens Building and Protecting your Reputation. Speaker, MC, Media Coach, Speech Coach and Reputation Management Specialist
“Lee did a superb job transforming my Powerpoint slides. His passion and enthusiasm plus his approachability makes him ideal to work with. I have no hesitation in recommending him”
Paul McGee – The Sumo Guy International speaker and bestselling author on change, resilience, motivation and inspiring leadership
“One reason I chose to work with Lee is that he is a speaker himself, and he understands how audiences interact with slides. He did an excellent job revising my tired, dated slides. I knew they needed refreshing, but I was surprised at how much! I already had avoided Power Point no-nos–I didn’t have too much text, or use confusing charts, or have boring and generic pictures, but Lee still saw ways to elevate the slides–both with how they looked and in how they would enhance my presentation. Lee also was great to work with, despite the many hour time difference. He stayed in touch, responded to emails promptly, and called when we needed an actual conversation. A total professional in every way; I’m incredibly pleased with the result.”
Susan Tabor-Kleiman, US based speaker JD Persuasive Communication & LinkedIn Consulting | Business Writing | Speaker Bios | Lecturer, Wharton School
“Lee is superb at taking your dull and boring pictures or words in a presentation and turning them into something special. I was delivering a talk on Narcissists, Machiavellians and Psychopaths in Change Management and Lee used my vague ideas to create some great slides that I felt confident to deliver. Book his time to do the same for your presentation, he’s worth his weight in gold!”
Angela Johnson Transformation Change Manager at SopraSteria Group – SSCL
“I write this recommendation with no hesitation. I’ve been a trainer for over 20 years but decided it was about time to get my slides I use during training to reflect how professional I was. Having shopped around for a ‘PowerPoint Specialist’, Lee Jacksons name kept coming up. We organised a one to one session which resulted in me leaving with enough knowledge to produce SUPERB slides. Lee’s creativity and ideas were excellent and the way he shared the information was easy to follow. As a result of his session I’m not just getting great feedback on the training I deliver but also now on the quality of my slides. THANK YOU LEE – delighted. I would highly recommend him for one to one, groups, corporates or speaking engagements. Lee is definitely an expert in this area.”
Audrey Bodman Telephone & Sales Trainer/Coach/Speaker? Employer Engagement Specialist ? B2B, W2W & WBL
“I engaged Lee to give some training on presentation skills and PowerPoint surgery to the Yorkshire branch of the Institute of Financial Planning. Lee is highly engaging, energetic and interactive and an expert in this area. We all came away with real nuggets on how to present properly, and avoid the common pitfalls. Lee is a skilled trainer and his own presentation style is an excellent antidote to all those dry presentations you may have experienced in the past. I warmly recommend him to any organisation seeking to equip and encourage its staff to become better presenters and to stand out from the crowd.”
Murray McEwan Owner/Director at Flowers McEwan Ltd
“Thanks for the time you shared with us yesterday – a rare combination of enjoyable and valuable. I have already changed my approach for a presentation in February in an effort to engage my audience a fraction as well as you did. Whole heartedly recommend Lee to anyone who has to talk or present to a group of more than one person at any time.”
Mike Hague Owner, Investment for Life
“As a speaker and trainer I have used PowerPoint presentations for many years, until recently I thought they were good, then I recommended to speak to Lee. I was blown away by his book “PowerPoint Surgery” and immediately took the knife to my presentations. The first person that seen the new slides wanted to know who made and where they could buy them! Buy the book or hire Lee Jackson and start to make your presentations look world class!”
Scott Bell – Founder of UK Firewalk & pro speaker
“Lee Jackson is provocative and really gives you something to think about. I “thought” that my slides were good – then I met Lee! He really helped me improving my slides and with that my speaking. Thank you.”
Felix A. Schweikert Founder / Owner of Schweikert Training & Consulting
“In his easy-going and creative style, Lee has helped our lawyers with presentation skills achieving great results for both the lawyers’ confidence and the audience’s entertainment.”
Philip Williams, Professional Support Lawyer at Wrigleys Solicitors LLP
“It’s amazing how many people in business use PowerPoint without having a clue how to use PowerPoint. As such, it has a really bad reputation and a bad name. Enter Lee Jackson…here’s someone who knows how to use it…PROPERLY, and how to interact with it. He knows how to get the most out of it, and how both designers and delivers can use it as it was meant to and in doing so, deliver messages that are attractive enough for people to engage with. Even if you can’t get Lee to come and see you in person, BUY HIS BOOK. It transformed the thinking of my team…a huge thanks to Lee!”
ND, L&D Asda Head Office
“I had the pleasure of attending Lee’s presentation at the Global Speaker Summit in 2013 on the subject of PowerPoint Surgery – How to Create Slides that Stick. He delivered to a packed room and filled his presentation with ideas and suggestions that are easy-to-implement and deliver amazing value. And he’s funny too! We all know how important it is to have good slides, but Lee broke down the process of how to add more audience engagement – and entertainment – to every presentation.”
Suzannah Baum Public Speaking & Presentation Skills Expert Speech Coach Speaker Founder of Create A Signature Speech That Sells
“Lee’s book “Powerpoint Surgery” is a great source of best practice for making powerpoint presentations that are both remarkable and memorable.”
David Ednie, President & CEO, SalesChannel Europe
“Lee’s ideas around PowerPoint slides are brilliant. His ideas and creativity have changed the way I prepare my slides forever. If you are making presentations (or thinking about it) make sure you find out more about Lee’s concepts so you can WOW your audience with your presentation.”
Simon Chaplin Keynote Speaker, Consultant, Accountant, Business Advisor. See www.socksupsimon.com to find out more
“Lee’s approach to public speaking and PowerPoint presentation structure and content is genuinely innovative and arresting for the audience – the antithesis of “death by slides”. I feel that anyone who speaks regularly in public or wants to improve the results or perception of their presentations would benefit from working with Lee.”
Nick Mawby, Category Marketing Manager at Redring Xpelair Group
“I thought I was good at PowerPoint and I was avoiding all the main errors many people make. But after 1 session with Lee I found out I was so way off target. Lee truly knows his stuff, shares it so it makes perfect sense and is a true master at his art. I hate him ….as I now have to redo all the many presentations I have built over the last few years. Only joking…a bit!!”
Will Kintish, Business Networking Skills. Author – Business Networking Survival Guide
“Lee Jackson is certainly the “Go To Man!”. Im a Professional Speaker and use slides as part of my presentation. He transformed my slides within 20 minutes, and gave a sleek look to my presentation. Lee is really great to work with and always kept to my deadline.”
Karen Asemper Inspirational Keynote Speaker, Author and Coach, Self-worth Booster, helping people achieve Extraordinary results.
“Lee is a total genius when it comes to PowerPoint! I had an idea for a new presentation and I was getting very anxious about creating it. Lee stepped in and not only delivered an impactful and exciting set of slides, but he also helped me improve my presentation of the information. He really knows his stuff, can create amazing results with slides AND delivers a fantastic keynote about the mistakes people make with their presentations! That’s what gave me confidence to hire him for this project in the first place.”
Mindy Gibbins-Klein Keynote Speaker, Workshop Leader and Executive Coach on Thought Leadership and Content Marketing
“Lee’s style of presenting impressed me so much that I have now worked with Lee on numerous occasions delivering Communication Skills Training workshops on numerous occasions. His attention to detail with regards to Powerpoint / Keynote Slides not only inspired me to look at my own slides differently but he has also been guest presenter on my public events talking about this subject. In his role as Vice President at The Professional Speaking Association (NE) he has gone above and beyond what is expected in that role which is why he won award for recognition of his services to the region. He has helped me out on far more occasions than I can remember when I have had problems with my Mac both in the office and more importantly seconds before I am due to give a presentation. Lee is someone who will move mountains to help you. 100% Professional, 100% Genuine and 100% a true gent.”
Richard McCann, Founder at iCan Speak Academy
“Lee’s knowledge of PowerPoint and his excellent presentation skills make him a must if you are looking for professional assistance in this area. Coupled with his natural sense of humour and entertainment skills, you can’t go wrong with Lee – I highly recommend him.”
