It’s 4:07. Your daughter’s softball game starts in an hour and a half. You’ve missed dinner every night this week, staying late to work on tomorrow’s 9 am presentation. Although you finally finished crunching all the numbers and know what you need to say—you know that making the softball game or dinner is out of the question. You still need to format the entire presentation so it looks good for your boss. Because, on top of everything at home, you really need to do well on tomorrow’s presentation if you want to show that you can handle the new account your firm just won last week.
You open PowerPoint on your computer and begin to swift through the presentation templates. PowerPoint templates provide the structure and layout design for your presentation. Software programs like Microsoft’s PowerPoint or Apple’s Keynote come preloaded with different designs for you to choose. You select a design and then slowly begin to format everything to your presentation’s needs.
Sound familiar? Most likely, yes, given that it’s estimated that 350 PowerPoint presentations are given every second around the world.1 Chances are you’ve been subjected to far too many subpar presentations—the kind that are filled with cheesy clip art photos, too many words crammed onto a single slide, and a deck of slides that seems to never end.
This doesn’t have to be the case for your presentation, though. Allow us to introduce ourselves. We’re Improve Presentation and we provide you with presentation templates including PowerPoint templates and Keynote templates.
Now, if you’re thinking, “Why would I need to buy a presentation template if PowerPoint or Keynote already has them,” then you fall into the majority—the same group that misses out on time spent with family and friends and spends too many nights eating cheap take-out food at their desks while dragging and dropping stereotypical photos of businessmen shaking hands into their presentation.
We’re here to help you fall into the minority—those that give a great presentation seemingly effortlessly. Our PowerPoint templates are different in the best possible way. The professional templates come preloaded with beautiful, crisp layouts and photos that inspire your audience. The best part is not only can you have a stunning and informative presentation, but also that you can create it in less time.
Don’t just take our word, though. Geoff from selz.com emailed us:
I was really impressed with Improve Presentation’s template which looked impressive, offered great value for money and was super easy to customize. They are a great choice for any startup business who might need an affordable professional pitch deck.
We receive feedback all the time from seasoned business professionals to interns making their first big professionals about how the templates make their presentation both easier and more professional.

Then simply add your own information to the text boxes and graphs built into the template.
Focus on What You Do Best
No more deciding on which color scheme best says, “choose us to host your account” or whether you should format text on the left-hand side or center of the slide. We already took care of all that. We’re professional designers, so we’ve done what we do best in creating every single template, so you can do what you do best, whether that’s pitching to investors, presenting next year’s firm-wide strategy, or sharing the company’s services to prospective clients.
