Get a PowerPoint template designed for your consulting practice. Before you do this step, you obviously want to have a logo designed, and have a color scheme designed and chosen for your practice. 

Once you have that done, you can go ahead and get a PowerPoint template designed. You don’t want to use just PowerPoint out of the box obviously. If you worked at a large consulting firm, you may want your template to parallel, or mirror that, in terms of how the charts are designed and setup, and the default fonts, and so forth. 

And a list of resources of graphic designers who have experience doing this is in the extras for this episode.
