The face at the helm
I’m Guillaume Wiatr, visual strategist and principal of MetaHelm.
Building the story as the core of everything else has been my belief since I was in college. To me, a presentation is a story. In my 20 years as a consultant in Europe and the US, I founded start-ups, launched products, changed mindsets, coached senior executives and teams of entrepreneurs. Every time we succeeded, it was because we had our story straight and because we could turn it into a moment that was emotionally resonant.
Point of view
The genesis of MetaHelm
We don’t need more slides
We need more persuasion. Presentation coaching is commonly but wrongly paired with PowerPoint slides only. This view is only the tip of the iceberg. Engaging in a rigorous and deeper presentation process should trigger better thinking, more conversations, more alignment and ultimately more impact. In my process, we talk about business goals, strategy, story, and structure first. We sketch a lot because it’s faster and eliminates room for ambiguity. All that, way before we even think about building slides.
Your future depends on the story you craft
