The WOW Factor

Professional presentations and expert training

Who We Are

Since 2001, Audience Alive has been bringing audiences out of the presentation black hole they’ve been subject to. You know the one we’re talking about? The one where you feel like you’re being pulled apart in different states of boredom and you are questioning why the presenter is so cruel as to do this to you? Luckily, Audience Alive knows what it takes to pull your presentation out of the dark and into the beautiful light and we’ve got many years’ experience in doing just that. Making professional presentations is what Audience Alive does.


We craft dynamic, professionally designed presentations that allow you to deliver your message with confidence and meaningfulness. It’s all about creating that WOW! Factor and having your product presented professionally without skimping on the entertainment value that really engages an audience.

You know the saying, ‘Don’t judge a book by its cover’? Well we’re sorry to say it, but everyone really does judge a book, or presentation, by his or her first impression. With all the content around to consume, it’s just the way an audience filters through it. That means that your company won’t get a second chance to make a good first impression, so your presentation really needs to be extravagant, compelling and presented expertly to effectively engage your audience.

With headquarters in Dubai, Audience Alive is an award winning “presentology” and “eventology” company offering New Zealand businesses expertly presented presentations, audience participation systems and mobile event apps.

What We Do – Professional Presentations, Audience Engagement and Expert Training

We’ve all had to endure a boring, dull and time-wasting presentation that leaves us feeling empty inside and questioning why the presenter even stood up in the first place. Every day someone, somewhere, sits in a talk and thinks: ‘Dear God, What have I done to deserve this? Do I need to sit through another ‘Death-by-PowerPoint™’ presentation? I’ve got a million things piled on my desk and this event certainly isn’t helping to get them done’!

It doesn’t have to be that way. You don’t need to sit through a questionable presentation, nor does the presenter need to be delivering a conservative, sleep-inducing presentation.

We want to bring your audience to life, encouraging interaction and promoting excitement. Engaging your audience can, while difficult, can be done really well with the help of digital media, video, voice-overs, state of the art graphics and live-response tools. But it doesn’t stop at technology. To deliver an exceptional presentation, you’ve got to sell your story and sell it well. You can’t race through it with nerves or practice your best monotone voice. You’ve got to deliver with confidence and personalise your presentation so you really connect with your audience on a meaningful level. Our expert presentation training will help you realise your full potential as a public speaker.

How we do it

Stories. And good stories at that. To win over your audience you have to form a relationship with them, and to do this you need to create a unique brand story that speaks to the real reason they are sitting in front of you.

After receiving your presentation, we can understand the essentials of your business: what it stands for, what it wants to be, what it wants to sell and who it wants to sell to. We’ll use the important facts and figures you provide, but instead of displaying these in a standard, boring manner we will craft these into a fluid story that presents your brand in an exciting light which leaves a lasting impression on your audience. The use of props, digital and visual media, interactive software and compelling storytelling helps deliver that brand story in an exciting, interesting and memorable way.

With many years experience creating professional presentations in the Middle East, Audience Alive also offers bi-lingual presentations helping companies better connect with international audiences and clients.
