The Business Case

Back in November 2019 we were contacted from the Country Director of one of the Deloitte’s entities in Europe. He participated in a training we did for Deloitte a few months ago which we did for one of his teams and he knew it was us who will help them with probably the most important presentation in his life. Our client was invited to a critical for their career progression meeting at the beginning of 2020 in Prague, the Czech Republic. The stakes were high as the presentation was in fact an interview for him to go a few levels up in the Deloitte hierarchy. As he, himself told us: “This is a life and career-changing event for me!” However, there was a serious challenge in front of us – none of us had any idea who the audience is. The meeting was a private one and no one knew who the jury was going to be. And that’s where the journey started…

The Solution

The first thing we did was we sat down and started brainstorming on who these people might be and how we can learn more about them. We decided to ask the organizers of the event first but they refused to give up information. Then, however, we found something else that could help us – the participants from the previous years. look for participants from previous years. Long story short, information about the jury was found in the intranet of Deloitte which gave us a huge insight on how to make the craft the story so that it resonates with them. Once we completed the story we gave it to the design team with quite some requirements for them…

The Design

We wanted to stand out from Slide 1! That’s why we created something that was still on brand but we wanted the jury to see we are about to put up a show. We created these flying pieces of the circle and timed them so that he can connect, start the slideshow and get in front of the jury in exactly the time it takes for the pieces to get to their places. From there we used the help of the Morph transition in PowerPoint to create some stunning movements that yet again told the jury: “This is not your typical corporate presentation!”.

The Results

We know the result but we cannot tell you anything. However, mark your calendar for the middle of June 2020 and come to this page again. You may find something changed. 😉
