Last year reviews
#1: Last Year’s Review and Analysis
Need to share information about your company’s last year performance? An annual report is a comprehensive overview of a company’s activities throughout the preceding year. Therefore it usually contains large amounts of complex data. If you’re looking for one deck which has it all – from the executive summary and business performance measures to revenue highlight and financial KPIs, the annual review presentation is just for you.
See more examples of how you can disclose your key business highlights and financial data in a simple and understandable way to your key stakeholders.
#2: Financial Results and Indicators
Financial reviews full of data and analysis are typically difficult for digesting by non-financial audiences. If you need to show the financial results of your company including income statement, balance sheet, cash flow, or financial ratios analysis in a simple and understandable way to your key stakeholders, check our financial report deck.
#3: Stock Financial Annual Report
If you need to focus on presenting annual company performance for a stock exchange or other type of investor report, check this PowerPoint template with basic components covering key financial and sales information. It contains slides to show executive leadership – board members, advisors, office locations, and basic legal information needed for SEC reporting.
#4: Project Status Updates
Illustrate the project activities’ status with traffic light visuals, and show what projects have to Go and what have No-Go by colorful RAG tables graphics. Red, amber, and green colors are great when it comes to presenting tasks’ development stages. Check more ways how you can use traffic light graphics in your presentations.
#5: E-commerce Analysis Presentation

Next year Planning
#1: Annual Budget Financial Presentation
When you need to present your financial proposal to managers or executives for their approval, a budget proposal presentation is an essential tool used to communicate key financial information.
An all-in-one business budget template, covering every aspect of financial affairs, can help highlight important insights, and keep the numbers organized, making it easy to track revenue, risk, profit, plan for expenses, and more.
#2: Overview of Plan and Projects
A PowerPoint calendar table is an effective visual way to present your plans and projects in a more or less detailed way. You can also give it as a handout to your team after the meeting or print such calendars to display in an office (or home office 🙂). Create a calendar that guides, inspires, and keeps everyone on track!
#3: Strategy Roadmaps for Long-term Vision and Action Plans
A well-designed strategic roadmap is like a GPS for your company or business. It’s one of the best tools to lift the fog and make your vision clear for everyone on the team. Whatever your planning level and context are, the visual roadmap can be one of the best tools in your communication arsenal.
#4: Marketing Strategy Plan
Need to illustrate marketing objectives, evaluation research, product strategy, or project plan for the upcoming year? Use infographics and diagrams to visualize your marketing strategy. They will help to keep the audience’s attention and make information easily understandable for everyone.
#5: OKR Objectives and Key Results Performance Review
Even if you don’t utilize OKR methodology for your annual review, you might still need to present one. A performance review can be of individuals, teams, projects, or even the company at large. No matter the size of your audience or the subject of your presentation, having concise slides will help you explain complex data, ambitious goals, and achievements.
#6: 30-60-90 Days Action Plan
A 30-60-90 day action plan is a presentation of work objectives for the first three months in a new position. Besides illustrating how you’re going to accomplish goals at a new company, you can use these templates even if you didn’t change the job. For example, while creating an actionable project template to divide big goals into manageable tasks or during the performance review to show end goals.
#7: Business Growth Strategy Plan
Need to explain the ways to grow your business, or introduce a new product line, and looking for creative ways how to illustrate your plans to achieve it? Have a look at our business growth strategy plan presentation. It includes slides for visualizing the current state of the business overview, growth strategy, development roadmap, Ansoff’s matrix toolbox, market penetration strategies, new market analysis quadrant matrix, key growth drivers comparison, and more.
Interlacing numbers and text with graphics will improve your presentations’ readability, especially when you are planning to throw light on complex processes, analyses, or comparisons.
