We live in an age of ongoing innovation and change, and leaders know their companies need to evolve or risk being left behind. All the same, when it's time to collect some innovative ideas from the team, we often hear the same old suggestions and solutions, leaving us with the million dollar question: How do you get the most creativity from your team?
We need to tell you a tale about stories. Why? Well, people have been sharing their stories since the dawn of time. According to research, it's still by far the best method for making a message stick. It probably won’t surprise you to know that our brains are wired to absorb narratives better than bullet lists or long informative texts.
We know that many people who use Pickit on the web have been wanting to see some of the functionalities they already know and love from our award-winning Office add-in. That’s why we’ve just launched an all-new responsive company image bank webpage for a smoother and more unified user experience.
Few things kill creativity faster than institutionalization and a regimented corporate structure. That said, running a creative company isn’t all about ping-pong tables, Friday beers, and startup-style brainstorming sessions–there comes a time when we have to get organized, and to sit down and do some serious work.
We’re excited to launch the beta version of one of our most requested features: The Insights Dashboard.
Starting today, Pickit Business administrators have access to analytics and actionable insights* in the Administration Panel, making it easy to optimize their image bank and increase colleagues’ productivity.
*Note: The Insights page currently includes data from the Office add-in and Administration Panel on the web. Data from the Public page on the web and other channels will be added in future updates.

We need to talk about storytelling. Why? Because people have been telling stories since the dawn of time, and according to research, it's still by far the best method there is for making a message stick. It probably won’t surprise you that our brains are wired to absorb narratives better than bullets lists and long informative texts.
So, wherever possible, try to find ways to include stories that illustrate your points. And when you can’t tell a story, you can still use story structure to help make your presentation more compelling. We'll show you how.
Are you using PowerPoint 2019 or the one coming with Office 365? Congrats! You can do magic! And for those of you still on an older version, keep reading because what you will see in this article will surely make you do the switch or at least push towards it if you work in a corporate environment.
Many people often tell me that PowerPoint hasn’t changed that much. To be honest, I can see why they are saying that. Almost nothing changed that dramatically from 2007 up until the last few years. However, three years ago (in 2016) many things changed. Microsoft started introducing a ton of new features to the product and one of them is called Morph Transition.
You only get one first impression and people will decide whether or not to listen in a matter of seconds. So, instead of wasting your intro on irrelevant background info about yourself or your company, start with a bang.
In this post, we'll show you how.
This blog wasn’t designed with TED Talks and mainstage keynote presentations in mind as much as for ordinary people at the office; everyday presenters who want to pitch better, share ideas more clearly, and to make the most of their work.
