Nikki Barkwill

Senior Account Manager

Building relationships and keeping projects running smoothly is what Nikki excels at most.

With over 10 years’ experience connecting with clients and working alongside them, Nikki nurtures each relationship so that it can grow and evolve into something amazing.

We’ve worked hard to build an adaptive network of presentation specialists, designers, animators, copywriters and visualisers who can support us across a huge variety of different projects at the right time.

This enables us to offer a full range of presentation services and work flexibly within varying timescales (who says presentations are always left to the last minute…!).


This is our favourite part of the process. Every presentation is unique and we love getting to know you and hearing about your project. Get in touch using our contact form or send us an email and we’ll book in a call to talk through your presentation and requirements in detail before we supply you with a cost estimate. It’s the start of the journey towards bringing your presentation to life and giving you the confidence to shine!

Absolutely! We love talking presentations, so drop us a line and we’ll arrange a time to talk to you about your requirements in detail. We’ll then take you through our presentation design service options and give our recommendation on which would suit you best.

There are so many variable factors involved, it’s impossible to give a definitive answer. That being said, we will always do our best to deliver within your timescales – even if they are super tight! So get in touch to discuss your presentation design requirements and we’ll work out a timing plan that suits everyone.

We completely understand the seriousness of sharing sensitive data. So let us put your minds at rest, we always ask for an NDA as soon as a project is agreed and will make sure it is signed and sent back to you prior to any work taking place. We can even sign one before your initial consultation if you’d prefer. When the work has commenced, we make sure your presentation files are saved in a secure location which only those working on them will have access to.

The nature of the work is such that every presentation is completely unique, so there isn’t a one-size-fits-all cost estimate. We review each project individually so that we can give you an estimate that is accurate and fair – we are called HALO after all!

Of course! Working with brand guidelines (no matter how comprehensive!) is second nature to us. We use our knowledge and expertise to turn your raw content into a compelling presentation that is on brand, whilst also telling a story that captivates.

We sure can! The majority of presentations that we create are in PowerPoint, however we know that Google Slides, Prezi and Keynote all have their place too and we are more than happy to design within these programs. Whatever the software, we guarantee that you will come away with a presentation that is tailored to you and gives you the confidence to shine.

Once we have worked our magic, we will send your presentation back to you in whichever file format you need, ensuring that it is fully editable (text and images).
