  29. 29. Example Slide • Present a really good solution and arguments for it. Mindset 29 Start With a Problem • Great visual. • Start with a story & an uncomfortable truth about the business.
  30. 30. Example Slide CampaignMonitor 30 Clear Value Proposition • Very clear what it is and for whom. • Specific lead paragraph. • Key features outlined above the fold. • A relevant image. • Features a booster – “100% rebrandable”.

  33. 33. Example Slide Storytelling Evernote 33 • A different kind of layout, but well done. It tells a story of ‘what’ & ‘how’.

  34. 34. Example Slide We are a community Mentice 34 This is one of the most difficult value propositions I ever created.

Final solution is the longing Mentice customers and prospects have to be better. To achieve excellence and save lives. That is the outcome they want even though they all do it in different ways. My assumption is that if you want to be better within your field you will read more.
