Why did we start on this journey?

Prezent was born out of a simple belief, “Everyone deserves a fair chance to bring their ideas to life.”

When I landed in the US as a 21-year-old immigrant engineer, I faced a massive challenge—effective business communication. I did not know what made great business communication great. With my core engineering work in front of me, I did not have the time to master the art and science of business communication. Existing tools were inadequate, and training was expensive. I watched in awe as some people effectively pitched their ideas and grew their careers powered by great communication.

Throughout my career (management consultant at McKinsey and senior executive at Cisco Systems), I found I was not alone. There are thousands of busy business professionals, that face the same situation every day. They did not have the time or the training to create and deliver great business communication. And that negatively affects their work-life balance, the success of their ideas and the trajectory of their careers.

  • The hard-working business operations manager spending 15 hours a week—mostly in the evening—building presentations instead of spending time with her family
  • The finance-whiz getting feedback that his promotion was on hold because of the lack of structured storytelling in his presentations
  • The training leader wondering how she will complete all the presentation documents needed as budgets were shrinking
I also realized that alternatives like management consulting and design agencies were super expensive and inaccessible.
  • Executives have to shell out $50K+ for a structured storytelling workshop/training with a top-tier management consulting firm
  • Elite design agencies charge $20K+ for one presentation
  • Marketing executives find it hard to make sure everyone in the company is compliant and on-brand
This did not seem fair.

When the pandemic hit and the hybrid work-from-home model started, I had a moment of clarity. What if we could create technology that gives the power of structured communication, business understanding and beautiful design (in corporate-approved branding) to everyone in a business organization. That would level the playing field and give hundreds of millions of professionals a fair chance to bring their ideas to life. I quit my job as a senior executive at Cisco Systems. Prezent was born.
