Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $55

My passion is making information compelling, digestible, and motivating. There is nothing that pains me more than to see a well intentioned presenter/ report writer striking out time and time again because of the way their information is organized and presented. I love changing the way that sad story plays out and watching organizations succeed because of what I do.

If you need more than just "someone good at PowerPoint," you've come to the right place.

Service Description

From Laura Winn Johnson, CMI (I can provide contact information if requested):

"Kat has an amazing ability to take complex concepts and bring them to life visually--especially in PowerPoint. She brings experience and wild creativity as a partner in the front end brainstorming process or to the improvement and revitalization of an existing deck.

I highly recommend her as a partner in just about any kind of creative endeavor!"



I have six years experience helping sales reps, top level executives, report writers, trainers/instructors, and seminar speakers get their messages across. Each of these types of clients have very different needs in terms of their goals, audience, deliverables, and mode of presentation. I work with my clients to understand the specifics for each project and design presentations and reports that deliver accordingly.

I can provide report and presentation tweaks, face lifts, or complete revamps. Perhaps you only have the information and need it organized into a report or presentation; I do that too! Other deliverables that I...
