Growth Associate Larry

Larry, what’s your own practical tip to work better?
Optimizing the processes through automation is one of my drivers. I do it by coding macros on Excel, and also by installing browser extensions that help me perform repetitive tasks. When I have an idea of automation, I just Google it and learn how to do it concretely.

Our mission is to “Help People Work Better”, what kind of helper are you?
Growth Associates contact people who perform repetitive tasks like reporting every day. In our daily life, we don’t always have the time to re-think the way we work: my goal is to show them a slight alternative. The idea is not to redesign all of our user’s processes, but rather to boost some of them.

How would you describe UpSlide in one word?
Fast.

What is your favorite UpSlide feature?
The “Arrange” feature. It helps me build slides so much faster, without worrying about the layout!

Growth Associate Marguerite

Marguerite, what’s your own practical tip to work better?
Work smarter, not harder! To achieve this, the best way is to communicate, communicate and communicate. It’s useless to redo the work already executed or to learn on your own when someone can teach you!

Our mission is to “Help People Work Better”, what kind of helper are you?
A listener: I’m convinced that listening to clients and understanding their needs is key to a successful talk.

How would you describe UpSlide in one word?
Useful.

What is your favorite UpSlide feature?
The “Publish” feature: it makes it so easy to send a slide to someone when you need a feedback! You don’t need to save a new version with a selection of slides before sending your email anymore: everything’s done in 10 sec!

Growth Associate Flavien

Flavien, what’s your own practical tip to work better?
Anticipation, anticipation, and… anticipation. I hardly ever succeeded in catching a train that is faster than me.

Our mission is to “Help People Work Better”, what kind of helper are you?
As Growth Associates, we always have to make them feel like they can do anything. My advice don’t be sparing with compliments!

How would you describe UpSlide in one word?
Kindness.

What is your favorite UpSlide feature?
Slide Check! It’s so useful that I might even suspect myself to make mistakes on purpose… =)

We are very happy to welcome Larry, Marguerite, and Flavien on our team!
