Warwick Burgess, Director at Presentation Space, is an Articulate customer who understands the importance of an effective presentation: The Australian company has studied the science of it, including the impact on the human brain.
Creating and delivering content with Articulate Studio ’09 is an integral part of how Presentation Space trains its customers — which include companies like American Express, Clorox Australia, and Wyeth Australia — to become better speakers and presenters.
Presentation Space practices what it preaches and has done an excellent job leveraging Articulate tools to create online content that engages its audience.

Interview with Warwick Burgess
I asked Warwick a couple questions about his experience using our software:
Why do you use Articulate Products?
My background is in marketing and multimedia production. We came across Articulate searching for the best production tool to produce a comprehensive presentation skills eLearning course. When compared with the complexities of programming and producing a course using other software programs, we were delighted with the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of the complete Articulate solution. We’re also using Articulate increasingly to produce and deliver short promotional presentations for both ourselves and clients.
What are your favorite Articulate features?
We use the majority of the Studio ’09 products and features. We found the branching options and the Hide in Navigation Panel feature added significantly to the navigation options, and there were a number of productivity improvements in the ’09 versions that have enhanced our production efficiency.
So next time you’re creating elearning or delivering a presentation, consider the physiological impact your delivery may be having on your audience.
