300-image Powerpoint Library

Jeff Bezos of Amazon is famous for disliking PowerPoint so much that he banned it. While he is not alone in his dislike for the tool, most of us cannot abandon it altogether.

So, what to do?

Our colleague and PowerPoint wizard Neil Young has prepared a 300-image library to help us create beautiful and professional diagrams fast. Cutting and pasting from this library has enabled me to

Work out what image to display to illustrate a concept by flicking through the library of ‘solutions in search of problems' as Neil calls them, until the right one jumps out

Prepare professional charts with complex images that are aligned correctly, whether they involve flows, processes, tables or other concepts

Stop fussing over minutiae to get connectors connecting to the wrong spot or spending hours spacing shapes evenly across a page

I hope you find it as useful as I do.

Less frustration, better, faster decisions


“This was the best course I have done.

I was always confident in my reasoning but not as confident with presenting it, particularly to audiences that were not on my wavelength. Davina has shown me how to organise my high level messages which gets me a better response from my audiences.

In fact, when I used the approach to present to the sales team last week half of them came up to me individually afterwards to compliment me on my presentation.

That has never happened before!”
