SOLUTION

MLC Presentation Design Consulting involved all the company’s key figures in a series of training and production activities. Stakeholders were called to collaborate in an exciting interactive workshop to discover the best storytelling techniques for business presentations.

​The MLC Approach


MLC Presentation Design has taken a meticulous and strategic approach to supporting BearingPoint. Initially, MLC worked with the BearingPoint team to conduct a detailed assessment of the existing presentation skills within the organization. This in-depth review revealed the need to strengthen two key areas: agility in using presentation tools and the ability to design effective strategic communications.

To address the first area, MLC guided BearingPoint in organizing a series of internal training sessions, aimed at improving proficiency with tools such as PowerPoint. This step was considered a key prerequisite, almost like a preparation phase, to ensure that all participants came to the workshop with a solid foundation in the fundamentals.

​The insight


MLC has identified the crucial importance of integrating agility in the use of presentation tools with advanced storytelling techniques and communication design. Understanding that effectiveness in business communication requires more than just technical expertise, MLC has shared its experience and resources to facilitate the preliminary internal training phase.

Next, the focus shifted to the heart of the workshop: strategic storytelling design. This phase was structured to build on the technical skills honed in the preparatory phase, allowing participants to explore and apply advanced concepts of storytelling and visual design, based on the insights gained from the assessment and initial training.

​The Process


A one-day workshop was organized for two main BearingPoint offices in Italy. In the first part of the workshop, the CEO of MLC Presentation Design, Maurizio, also the author of the book Lean Presentation Design, introduced an innovative methodology for the strategic approach to presentations, highlighting how artificial intelligence can revolutionize storytelling and productivity corporate.

During the workshop, participants were divided into groups to work on real case studies, creating a story script and developing slides to present their ideas. The session concluded with a final presentation which allowed direct feedback to be received.

RESULTS

The workshop clearly highlighted how challenging it is to transform business projects and ideas into stories that push the audience to concrete action. The participants experienced, firsthand, the tension of group planning for effective storytelling in tight deadlines and delivery with little preparation.

In the end, the consultants obtained a shared strategic framework and all the presentation design tools to face any communication challenge in the future.

CONCLUSION

The collaboration between BearingPoint and MLC Presentation Design demonstrated how innovation and a strategic approach to communication can transform presentations into powerful business tools, highlighting the importance of agility, visual design and effective storytelling.

CLIENT FEEDBACK

The training was based on the Lean Presentation Design methodology, which allows you to create effective presentations in as little time as possible. We learned how to transform data into memorable stories and understood how important it is to know our audience in order to better engage them.

Maurizio revealed some tricks on how to use artificial intelligence to create effective presentations. He put us to the test by dividing us into groups. Each group had to prepare a presentation on a case study in a very short time, then each group took turns presenting. It was a unique and super interesting experience, especially thanks to our trainer Maurizio, who was super engaging and didn’t let us get bored for a second.
