Help with presentations

upgrade your talk
Basic correction …

To help you prepare a presentation that you will give in English, I can translate or correct existing slides. If you wish, I can help you rehearse the delivery of the talk, as well. But I think things get more interesting if you want to shift you presentation out of the bullet-point-heavy mainstream. I agree with the experts who say that slides should be reduced as much as possible to simple graphics and a few words, instead of overloading them with text. Points that need more text should be provided as a handout.

… or radical reworking …

A fundamental redesign of a talk is easier said than done. Especially if you have to give it in a language that isn’t your native one, it’s tempting to have more text on the slides. But using slides as a kind of teleprompter is not good for communication. If you decide you want to resist this temptation, I can help you with the whole development process – deciding what should be on the slides, designing them and rehearsing your delivery of the talk.

How much does it cost?

Why I can help

I am a native speaker of English and an experienced writer. I have a good feel for the differences between writing and speaking, which are bigger in English than in German. And I have a good eye for layouts that are simple enough to get the message across.
