Inspiring vision and strong mission statements are parts which define contemporary company cultures. Presenting those statements to your team members in a catchy way, be can be a challenge, but we’ll help you 🙂 Here you’ll see several examples of vision and mission illustration in a PowerPoint presentation.
In many presentations, the vision and mission slides aren’t prepared with the attention those key company statements deserve. They are usually presented as a plain text quote. We’d like to inspire you by offering a few far more creative ways to communicate these impactful phrases to your listeners.
#1: Vision and Mission as Stairs & Exit Infographics
Putting a mission statement at the bottom of a slide and the vision above will symbolically show the step by step path towards achieving your company long-term goal (the Kaizen way).
Door graphics at the staircase end can represent an exit strategy if that’s your intended direction. That is often the case for start-up pitch presentations when applying for venture funds.
#2: Creative Picture Placeholders for Mission, Vision and Values Slide
Using pictogram symbols (a telescope, a rocket and a diamond) will help your audience to identify the slide topic faster and see right away what you are talking about.
You can add creativity and style by filling the vector shape with an appropriate photograph. (You can replace the picture inside with one you prefer. Those are editable placeholders inside the PowerPoint template).
Such picture graphics are style neutral so you can add them to any presentation type. To be consistent with colors, choose a photograph with colors close to your logo or the style of your presentation.
#3: Presenting Vision & Mission as a Contrast Quotes
We strongly suggest following the minimalistic rule: less text = a better-looking slide. Before finalizing a slide ask yourself whether you need the full text or you can trim it somehow.
Here’s an example: a dark picture, eye-catching icon and your most important statement in the white text.
Or if you like the flat infographics style more, look at the next picture, where we used big multi-color symbols associated with the concepts of vision, mission, and goal:
#4: Roadmap towards your Vision
The roadmap timeline is another good idea you can apply when you’re talking about business milestones. That way listeners will see exactly where you are now, where you are going and what steps need to be taken on the way.
#5: Venn Diagram to Show Values & Plans Interrelation
Here’s another unusual way to talk about management strategy concepts, however it’s a very effective one. You can show how you’ll fulfill your mission by accomplishing goals, which will lead to your vision. You can also show how the values connected are with the vision and mission of the company.
You can underline the synergy between the core company values, mission, and vision. Show that all three elements are important in helping to shape the overall organizational strategy. Venn diagrams look good in any style just use colors consistent with your brand or some neutral ones. You can easily use transparent or flat style Venn diagrams.
#6: Surprise them with Big Picture Slides for Vision and Mission Statements
If you like pictures more, then use the following slide template. Slides such as this with full-size picture background and text in semitransparent boxes will gain much more attention than other classical white background slides. Use them to create a surprising or more powerful effect.
#7: Diagrams to Show Vision and Mission
If you prefer to use a neutral background that will not steal attention from what you’re trying to say, apply a flat diagram on a plain white slide. This is a proven way to communicate your topic in a more effective way.
Make the diagram steps more interesting by adding appropriate icons. We prepared several options:
- A slide with steps flowchart:
- A quotation butterfly diagram slide:
- A slide where strategy is displayed in stages towards the final vision, starting with presenting company values
