VISUAL LITERACY FOR CHUGAI’S ADMIN TEAM

The Chugai Pharmabody Admin team develops presentations very often, for dissemination to various departments to provide updates on data as well as to announce new initiatives. These collateral then get circulated and used by the management team that relies on them for support.

INCULCATING A NEW PROCESS OF DEVELOPING PRESENTATIONS

Using Data, Visuals In Pharma

CHALLENGE

The team found themselves with a gap in visualisation skills and trouble working with data, tables and graphs – leading to ineffective internal communications

HOW WE HELPED

Learners got to learn from custom case examples pre-prepared by the trainer based on their corporate template, identity and brand. The session ended with them preparing a presentation directly on PowerPoint.

Testimonial

“The workshop has without a doubt, enhanced our presentation development skills as a team. What I personally enjoyed was that not only were we offered tips and strategies from an experienced practitioner, but we got to practice and internalise the learnings too. Not only was the workshop really insightful, it was a lot of fun too! My colleagues and I enjoyed it thoroughly and would highly recommend it to teams looking to enhance skills in this area.”

HOW WE HELPED

Through a custom program programme, we educated the team on best practices to adhere to their company’s template as well as the key principles of data storytelling as they deal heavily with charts and data. This was supported by a general curriculum on visual literacy. Learners got to even practice it on software to showcase to their peers and take home fully-designed slides.

Startup Bootcamp Training

Training Case Study: Startup Bootcamp

CHALLENGES

Startupbootcamp runs the Accelerator Programme, focusing on FinTech startups. At the end of the program, startups get to participate in demo day, where each group has 5 minutes to pitch their business to potential investors and venture capitalists. Though many of these startups had wonderful ideas, they were unable to communicate them effectively. Startupbootcamp engaged HighSpark to provide a 4-hour crash course, as well as personal consultations for each startup to help them achieve maximum results. HighSpark was also tasked to help the startups identify their unique positioning to differentiate themselves and appeal to their target audience.

Startup Boilerplate Structures

Action:

We conducted a crash course to guide the startups through frameworks such as visual communications and story structures. We also provided them with case studies, and obtained feedback from the others for their pitches. During the consultations, we also saw their latest presentation drafts, and helped the groups identify areas of improvement in terms of story flow, messaging and visual design.

Results:

The groups put to use what they had learnt during the crash course, and came up with visually impactful presentations that helped them engage their target audience.

Symrise Storytelling Training

Training Case Study: Symrise

CHALLENGES

Symrise had invested heavily into developing their products, and hence wanted to increase their chances of clinching sales. However, there was a lack of structure in their presentations, leading to numerous lost opportunities. Some clients had existing needs, which Symrise was looking to fill with their products. They also had specific products which they wanted to convince clients were in their best interests to get.

Symrise requested for Highspark to conduct a workshop for the marketing team, with emphasis on pitching, proposing ideas and concepts, and selling products to customers who either have or lack a need for it.

Action:

We decided to create a workshop that was tailored specifically to Symrise’s needs, and bring value to the discussions by showing them how to bring their key messages across to their audiences to increase the level of engagement. We created a framework and structure to guide the team in communicating their key points efficiently. We also focused on shifting the team’s perspective from selling to a customer, to getting customers to want the product, and compelling them to say ‘yes’.

Results:

The participants left the workshop with knowledge on how to craft powerful stories that bring their messages across, and convince their audience effectively. 72.7% (8/11) strongly agreed that the workshop was interesting and engaging.

What I appreciated the most probably from HighSpark was their high level of customization, the care and time they took for preparing the workshop and really making it fit for our company. Thank you.
