Tech specs

  • James's first priority is to engage, entertain, inform and inspire your audience. He uses slides to add to his presentation. His talks are about as far from "death by powerpoint" as you could get! 
  • We create slides using a MacBook Pro in Keynote, but of course can export to Powerpoint or PDF. 
  • We use standard fonts to minimise any conversion issues.
  • We create presentations in either 4:3 or 16:9 — please let us know which you prefer in plenty of time.  
  • James is happy to present from his laptop, to send the presentation in advance, or bring it on a stick — or all three!
