A professional team of award-winning execs

Passionate about making you great

Presentation Partners is a full-service presentation agency, bringing a full complement of master strategists, writers and designers to help you exceed your goals. Just as chefs know the best meals start with the highest quality ingredients, the success of an agency has everything to do with the highest quality talent.

This is a what-you-see-is-what-you-get group. There's no hand-off to junior staff. We know that a tight team of senior people delivers exponentially better work than a building full of entry-level order processors. And we're here to deliver great work.


Seasoned, battle-tested and award winning, our execs offer experience ranging from leading an IPO, closing multi-million dollar deals, advising a tech giant on IP issues to the apprehension of speaking live to hundreds of people. Even if we gave you months to toss them a challenge they couldn’t handle, you’d still come up empty.

They say managing creative professionals can be like herding cats. Fortunately our creative directors are like the Pied Piper of Hamlin — with a docile line of felicitous felines following closely behind them, all to seamlessly augment visual mood and tone to your winning story.

Our designers speak PowerPoint as if it were a second language. Seasoned veterans with tens of thousands of compelling slides to prove it, they channel every beat of deadline music and every ounce of super-caffeinated dark roast into crafting a visual mini-masterpiece that makes your story impossible to ignore.
