Imprez.ie Prezi Training, Design, Templates & Advice. Dublin, Ireland

Describe the company – the elevator pitch …

We help people design and deliver innovative presentations and provide presentation training. We do this by combining the art of storytelling with the skills of graphic design and a deep knowledge of the most powerful presentation tools.

How are you different?

We are Ireland’s first company to focus on using Prezi for presentation design. Prezi is an alternative to slide-based tools like Microsoft PowerPoint but relies on an open canvas and the ability to rotate and zoom to show the relationships between your ideas. We are also currently Ireland’s only company to be recognise by Prezi as ‘Official Independent Prezi Experts’.

Why will the company / product do well?

We think that the world is ready for better presentations. Whilst ‘Death by PowerPoint’ is an often over-used term, there is some validity to it. Most people don’t have the time or skills to design really effective presentations, and as a result they often end up delivering text heavy presentations that are riddled with bullet points. We take this pain point away from people and help them create presentations that are really memorable. That may sound like ‘fluff’ but is backed up by the fact that our customers tell us on a regular basis that the presentations and training we provided were instrumental in them winning key business.

When was the company launched?

2012

What have been your biggest wins to date?

Securing a deal to become the ‘official presentation supplier’ to a large multinational. This enterprise relied heavily on professional presentations to win bids. Initially we designed a large percentage of their presentations but more recently we have been tasked with training their staff so that they can design the presentations themselves.

What type of people (market segment) are you trying to attract to your product?

This might sound vague but anybody who delivers a presentation could be our customer. In saying that, the people who proactively contact us the most are sales & marketing professionals.

Tell us about your team?

Our team consists of graphic designers, project managers and Prezi experts. Joseph & I are the co-founders. A typical project involves a graphic designer, project manager and Prezi expert to pull everything together.

What are you long term plans for your product / company?

We would like to be recognised as the leading provider of professional presentation training & design services in Ireland and beyond.

What are your favourite tech gadgets?

Nike GPS Sportswatch, I’m an avid runner and love quantifying my training. I’m also a big fan of the Mouse app on my iPhone which helps me control my laptop when delivering training.

What tech gadgets do you wish you could use to help you?

I would love to deliver a presentation using Virtual Reality. This could make the experience really immersive. Perhaps this isn’t too far away though!
