Presentation Design Services: Directory for Powerpoint Outsourcing

Presentation Design Services: Directory for Powerpoint Outsourcing

Access to PowerPoint presentation design services and slide production firms that can help create professional presentations is something that many independent consultants need. 

Management consultants at global consulting firms typically have access to an in-house graphics production team that they use to create or edit PowerPoint presentations. In a typical process, a consultant marks up a document and sends it to an offshore graphics production team at night, and by the next morning has an updated document delivered.

Independent consultants with experience using this in-house service at a big firm often ask if there are similar companies they can use for PowerPoint outsourcing of slide production and presentation design services. 

Fortunately, the answer is yes. Multiple providers exist that provide a similar level of service to what the consultants at McKinsey, Bain, and BCG enjoy.

We surveyed our members to identify the PowerPoint outsourcing firms they recommend for presentation design services and slide production, and created this directory of providers. All rates are in U.S. dollars and reflect prices as of March 2022. Hours of operation are in EST (Eastern Standard Time) and GMT (Greenwich Mean Time).
