In its first year of business, Laser Pointer has delighted medical and dental speakers with slide deck “facelifts”, content and speaking coaching, and customizable infographics on various healthcare topics. Whether it’s PowerPoint, Keynote or Prezi, great content has been made memorable with visual representation of sometimes dry data or text heavy slides.

As a result of the work done with Laser Pointer, one client has been scouted and invited to national podium events. Another client, a junior faculty member impressed the audience so much that he is now being asked to speak at other universities. Most of Laser Pointer’s customers are busy clinicians who want snazzy slides with a powerful impact, but just don’t have time to spare. Studies show adding visuals and reducing text can result in significant gains in basic and higher-order learning. And since medical presentations are delivered to serve a crucial purpose – improving patient care – Laser Pointer places the highest premium on attention to detail in every job they do.

Time is in short demand for most clinician speakers, and is best spent with patients.  As one client put it, “I wouldn’t hesitate to hire an assistant to help me increase my patient case load, why wouldn’t I hire a presentation designer to help save me time so I can see more patients?” Laser Pointer can accommodate any schedule, even an overnight job submitted after a long flight!

With over 15 years in the medical and dental education field, Laser Pointer understands that healthcare presentations are about establishing common ground and communicating new ideas and procedures in such a way that the audience can make informed decisions about their own clinical methods. Presentations can be interesting, entertaining and informative and still kept within CME/CE guidelines and adhere to the requirements of sponsoring organizations.

Too many medical speeches meet a terrible fate, known as “death by PowerPoint.” Warning signs include mind-numbing blue or black backgrounds, an overdose of bullet points and toxic levels of data and text that bogs down the flow of a presentation.

Laser Pointer’s Services include:

  •     PowerPoint, Keynote and Prezi;
  •     Creation or use of unique templates and a consistent look and feel for text, layout, images, charts and diagrams;
  •     Custom graphics and infographics;
