Mandy started her career as an international trainer, Hotello and marketer. Quickly, she came across something familiar to all of us; inane, 'boring' presentations. She decided to change that by delving into the world of speaking and presentation design (content visualisation). She has now been running presentation boutique studio Present Savvy, marketing&design agency Savvy Department and she co-founded Speakers Club.
With all these labels, she is committed to creating (visual) expressions to create a memorable presence whether as an entrepreneur, organisation or professional speaker. She stood on stage herself several times, for example during the HotelloTOP. Her ambition is to make others shine on stage!
Her personal drive: too often, presentations are used as cheat sheets. They often have the same structure; opening slide with title, date and logo, introduction, agenda and bullets! Of course, this is not surprising. After all, we are taught this at school at an early age. A presentation is for your audience! We need to break away from fixed, ingrained patterns. Time and attention are precious. To create real impact, the presentation must be a total experience. Interesting content and catchy delivery in a surprising form (design) is essential to hold attention and create memories.
Make it memorable!
