"Nadine knows how to design visually stunning presentations, and she dropped all of her knowledge in this guide."
Syed Balkhi, Founder of OptinMonster
The only thing standing between the ideas in your head and massive success is your ability to communicate your ideas in a compelling way that gets people to trust you, like you and take action.
And this is exactly where most people fail.
Here's the deal: we live in a visual world. A world where having beautiful visuals is critical if you want to captivate and convert your audience.
Ugly doesn’t convert because:
Ugly is usually also confusing
Ugly makes people question your credibility
Ugly makes people think that maybe you just don’t care, so why should they?
#fact: ugly presentations are bad for business
Does this sound like you?
You sit at your laptop, fire up PowerPoint and you think to yourself:
... I know what I’m trying to say but I don’t know how to say it visually
... Does this look right?
... How do I make this look better?
Four hours and three cups of coffee later...
... PowerPoint sucks!
... I suck.
... This presentation sucks.
... Oh well. It’ll do.
if so, then

I love that Nadine makes something as intimidating and complicated as design so easy and accessible. Thanks to Slide Therapy I now realize that my slides can be so much better and all I have to do is follow Nadine's super simple step by step design hacks.

"I always thought my PowerPoints were great, but this really shows me how much I had to learn!!"
"This is such an awesome book. To be honest, I really wasn't expecting much when I read it since I was a full time designer in a past life. But, this book is so comprehensive and easy to read. It includes so many topics on things like typography types and how you can spice up anything to be so much more visually appealing. I already bought this book for my whole team, as it is such a great reference AND idea guide. The author really did a good job of explaining the DOs and DONTs of slide building. My favorite part was how well she shows the before and after for every concept. It makes the concept so easy. I always thought my PowerPoints were great, but this really shows me how much I had to learn!! “

Over the past few years, I realized that my PowerPoints weren't up to snuff and the visuals in this book quickly pointed out the things I was doing wrong to cause my presentation disasters. Slide Therapy does a great job of explaining elements like typography, color, images, and charts showing you visually what to do and what not to do. My slides will definitely never look the same again and all of my go-to PowerPoint tricks like picture styles, bullet points, and drop shadows will now be a thing of the past."
