Haiku Deck with Notes: It’s Business Time!

If you haven’t yet tried the powerful Notes feature, take a look at these awesome examples of Haiku Deck in the workplace–for training, for marketing, for communicating unique philosophies and competitive advantages. In other words, it’s business time, people! Here are a few of our recent favorites, for your inspiration.

Online Training

1. Haiku Deck is not just for live talks; you can also use it to create standout materials for webinars and online training sessions. Michele Mizejewski created this deck as an intro/overview for an online course she teaches for the Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL):

3. Long emails or document attachments may or may not actually get read, so how about an image-rich marketing plan? Judy Orr of Classic Realty Group in Chicago explains why sellers should list with her firm in this Haiku Deck, which mixes her own photos with images from our dynamic image search:

Showcasing Values

4. Haiku Deck works beautifully for illustrating your organization’s values and philosophy, whether you’re a global corporation or a soulful startup. Hal Hensler of the Laurel School in San Francisco used the app to create a memorable marketing piece that also tells the story of the school’s approach to learning:

5. In case you missed it in our roundup of the Best Decks of 2012, this Haiku Deck by Vancouver startup Tapstream is a model for the modern way to pitch your business. The team has created a dynamic, flexible content asset that can be delivered straight from an iPad or emailed, tweeted, posted, or shared. They’ve used the Notes feature brilliantly to add detail and texture to key features, stats, and product screenshots. This hard-hitting Haiku Deck is definitely worth a look:
