Need to Know Info: Inform Your People

Presentation slides to transfer essential information directly to where it’s needed in your business - Beat the sceptics and get employee buy-in.

‘Need to Know Info’ is the quick and easy way of spreading the knowledge contained in each High Impact Programme Unit to people and teams in your business. Ready-made slides enable all the key points from the Unit to be presented in the form of an in-house presentation, which is delivered by your own senior staff to other colleagues. Use convenient opportunities like scheduled production meetings to present to your people. The Microsoft PowerPoint training presentations can be delivered by projector, monitor or laptop. Alternatively print them out as large sheets and display them with the aid of a flipchart or by using printed A4 pages, handed out among a group. The choice is yours. Importantly the information remains the same. Features of ‘Need to Know Info’ include:

  • Information Derived from Units - 1st Class Technical Knowledge. Choose what to present based on training needs, time available etc.

  • No Disruption - Training is managed and presented in–house, on your terms. Schedule it to suit you, perhaps at routine meetings.

  • Very Easily Customised - Simply add your own specific technical details, branding etc to our core knowledge.

  • Choose Your Format - Present the information electronically, with the aid of a flip chart or as A4 hand-outs to a group.

  • Tips on Improving Your Presentation Style - Advice for delivering effective presentations.  Ooze professionalism and really get your message across.

  • Communicate and Manage Project Reporting Easily - The ideal tool for presenting project management progress to senior managers, colleagues, other departments and customers.
  • Easily Add Illustrations and Graphics - Simply copy and paste graphic images from other software. Examples include technical drawings, 3D models, bills of materials, graphs and charts, digital images etc. MS PowerPoint handles nearly all graphic file formats.

  • Incorporate ‘Need to Know Info’ into Career Development - Link the training presentations into your employees’ development. Build confidence and get staff comfortable with presenting technical data. The ability to present technical ideas, followed by successfully leading a group discussion is a desirable skill. Why not set it as a development goal.
