Detailed guides, beautiful templates and proven systems to help you communicate with confidence

Detailed guides, beautiful templates and proven systems to help you communicate with confidence

Your job is communication.

Everyone says you should learn to communicate better. But how? There's surprisingly little practical, actionable advice – especially tailored to the younger generation.

Leaders, managers, recruiters – communicators

Consultants, marketers, entrepreneurs – communicators

Lawyers, medical professionals – communicators

Researchers, teachers, students – communicators

Whoever you are, communication is your job. But communication is harder than it used to be.

Easy for big companies and famous people, but for the average person, where do you start?

Lack of good examples, guidance for modern audiences.

Pressure and responsibility at work. As much about mindset and mentality and confidence as it is about skill and ability.

X% fear public speaking.

X% suffer from speech anxiety.

Struggles with working with those younger/older than you…different cultures and backgrounds.

"People are not very willing to describe problems in concise language. Instead, they use vague expressions like "this isn't right" or "check it again". So it becomes difficult to practice and improve one's ability to express themselves.

AI, memes make communication harder for young Chinese – 41.5% admitted that they struggled to clearly express their ideas. 73.5% of participants said they were concerned that AI assistants might further degrade their ability to express themselves.

In the quest to be themselves, many young workers communicate casually. It doesn't sit well with all companies that see professionalism differently.

Awful meetings, embarrassing pitches, confusing emails – we've all been there – whether as the receiver or transmitter.

You'd think that with chatGPT, social media and tools like Grammarly, Canva etc. that communication would be getting easier…but no.

Unclear how to apply general communication tools to specific situations

A lot of communication advice feels generic/or not sure how to apply to modern situations and audiences

More to communicate, more visuals (expectation to use graphics, video), more pressure (more at stake with more eyeballs)

What's relevant now in 2024? How are presentations being designed these days?

We've dedicated the last 15 years to learning and doing it for top companies.

Future

R&D for communication

Go a little crazy, silly. Try things others won't. So many presentations look like they've been frozen in time. Design for the next generation. Or embrace the nostalgia.

Presentations and people are not one size fits all.

We've done presentations for many different audiences and different countries. For the ones where we have personal experiences, we'll say so and have more detailed insights. For others, we'll also let you know and curate the best from videos/posts/books.
