What our customers say

I had the pleasure to meet and work with Echo on a meeting recently and can't say enough on her work ethic, attention to detail and professionalism. The stress of last minute changes and client needs can always be a challenge and there was never a moment when she wasn't prepared. Can't wait to work with her again.

I love working with PowerPoint, and my homemade presentations always looked fine for my local talks. But recently I had to present at a national meeting, and I thought I would see how Echo could improve the presentation. The result was like night and day. The fee was very reasonable, considering I got a beautiful and professional presentation, general advice about PowerPoint, and a template I can use for future talks. The service is highly recommended!

John M. Clarke, M.D. Bay Surgical Specialists

When my clients have challenging needs for their PowerPoint templates and presentation projects, I can always count on Echo Swinford to deliver perfect results. Her knowledge of the program is beyond compare and she is gifted with the ability to explain difficult concepts so we can all understand. She cares about PowerPoint users and is always considering their experience with the templates that she builds. I’m grateful for her talents!

Echo is the PowerPoint Master. During our exhaustive process of getting our corporate template agreed and finished, Echo's team was so professional, patient and true experts in their field. Truly, we could not have done it without you Echo, as you know! Thank you so much. 100% recommended!

Building PowerPoint Templates v2
the definitive guide

Julie Terberg and I literally wrote the book on building PowerPoint templates. And now, finally, version 2 is available on Amazon as both a paperback and an e-book. 

Most templates we see are built poorly, which translates to a huge cost to businesses. Think about it. If someone wastes 10 minutes a day because their template is broken — let’s say they have to spend time searching for brand colors or applying the correct fonts — that means they’ve wasted about an hour that week. Over the course of a year, they’ve wasted an entire week. Now multiply that by every employee in your company. Expensive? You betcha!

Is that busted, essentially non-functional template your design agency provided costing you money? Get the book now.
