Nicky bootstrapped her business with zero experience and funding, having quit her job as a senior legal PA in civil litigation eight years ago. Nicky is not a fan of paid advertisements and therefore only uses organic marketing strategies.  She discovered that writing blogs, building an email list and creating branded visual content for sharing online were very effective marketing strategies.

Building a YouTube Channel has been enormously successful in terms of increasing brand awareness and building a loyal community of subscribers. Nicky posts weekly videos about how to use Canva and YouTube, and shares other marketing tips and tricks with her followers. With currently just over 8,000 subscribers Nicky is a brand ambassador for Canva, a Canva Creator and has been invited to join TechSmith’s Ambassador programme.

She is also on a mission to persuade businesses to ditch PowerPoint in favour of Canva presentations!

  • Ditch PowerPoint and Start Creating Presentations in Canva your Audience will Love

    During this session you’ll discover how quick and easy it is to create presentations in Canva.

    Using Canva’s Brand Kit it is possible to save all business visual assets such as logos, illustrations, motifs, colour hex codes and fonts in one place. Creating slides that are on brand and have a consistent visual style becomes so much easier.

    If you dread sitting in front of a blank slide hoping for inspiration there is an easy solution for you. Browse through Canva’s huge library of professional presentation templates and pick one that suits your project. You can even integrate slides from a completely different template using one of Canva’s small but powerful tools.

    Presentations are meant to make a lasting impression so make full use of Canva’s features and elements. Bring slides to life with animated text or graphics here and there.

    Upload video snippets into slides, add your own audio or, alternatively, integrate your YouTube channel with Canva so you have access to your entire playlist of videos.

    And if you really need a set of slides in PowerPoint for a conference or meeting, then learn how to convert a Canva presentation to PowerPoint using Nicky’s ‘Ninja’ tip. None of your beautiful formatting and brand styles will be ‘lost in conversion’.

    There are many, many reasons why you should ditch PowerPoint and start exploring Canva slides so I hope you’ll join me for this session.
