Client 1:

  • I want you to make it look great, like Steve Job's slides
  • Can I buy 15 slides from you, maybe 20?
  • How many hours would 15 slides take you?
  • I am actually a pretty good presenter, if I may say so. We just need the final 5% of extra punch.
  • Can you already include 3 slides in your project proposal?
  • I will put you in touch with Harry from corporate communications, he will be your main contact point throughout the project

Client 2:

Every time I pitch my company gets confused with this other technology. On the surface, they have a point, but we need to dive really deep into science to kill the issue, in 10 minutes. Can you help, I really need it.
