Summit is a proposal for a tool acknowledging that presentation design is more than creating slides.

There is more to a great presentation than beautifully designed slides. Presentations that stick with us are mostly those, where the speaker’s words intrigue us.
Today‘s presentation software suggests that you’re done with preparing, once your slides are done, because their original intent was not to design presentations, but the visuals that support them. We wondered, what would a tool look like, if it supported the entire process of a presentation?

The Process of Presenting

Collect Information

A presenter usually has more information on a topic, than the audience sees. Because we want the speaker to keep an overview of it, instead of having lots of distributed external sources, we encourage to gather information in one place.

  • Pasteboard
  • Add Content
  • Highlights

Select and Structure

Professional speakers spend a significant amount of time on preparing their language and the underlying structure of their talk. They might care about using stylistic devices especially thinking about how to establish suspense and place highlights. For outlining one’s presentation we provide a timeline, that helps to schedule how long you will speak on each topic of your talk. It also allows setting indicators to parts containing significant information or a highlight.

Design visual Support

You might want to add visuals to your presentation. At this point Summit tries to be as flexible as possible, providing options for embedding a desktop frame, a website or interactive prototypes.

Practise and get Feedback

Presentations need practice. To improve collaborative rehearsal we enable joining as a listener remotely as well as writing feedback and sending it to the presenter for later evaluation and comparison.

When presenting interactive content, you still might want to be supported by presenter notes. While viewing your interactive frames, prototypes, programs and websites get scaled up for optimal interaction. We also take responsiveness into account, so that it is possible to change font sizes and contrast on the go. And if you are more of a visual person, you can even add images to the presenter notes.
