About

Are you tired of bad presentations?

My name is Tomas Bay. I help business people create and deliver effective presentations.

When you want to influence, it's important to be clear, concise, and compelling regardless of who's in the room. I can help you.

"Communication is the most important skill any leader can possess." - Richard Branson, Virgin

What do I know? Business people are increasingly busy. They tend to be low on patience, and they want results.

My approach is inspired by people like Steve Jobs, Warren Buffett, and Jack Ma. I believe less is more. My focus is on simple messages, simple language, and simple design.

"If you can't communicate, it's like winking at a girl in the dark." - Warren Buffett

I follow a 3-step process; relate, create, and communicate. The process will help you relate to your audience, create a powerful message, and communicate your message with impact.

I provide DIY tools, workshops, and one-on-one coaching.

In the last 10 years, I have trained and coached thousands of business people to craft better messages and deliver more impactful presentations. Industries include aviation, real estate, shipping, technology, and fast moving consumer goods.

I am a principal consultant with Ethos (Swire) in Hong Kong, and the founder of Slides That Rock.
