This is Dave…

Hey 👋 we’re AhaSlides.

Boy, do we have a story for you…

In 2019, Dave was stuck in a meeting room in his native Australia, bored out of his mind.
Another dull one-way presentation. 50 slides, 2,000 words, 0 visuals.
Before sleep washed over him, he made himself a promise...
“Let me have a crack at this” – Dave thought.
I'm going to develop a magical presentation tool> to make sure no one feels this sleepy in meetings again.

At the end of the meeting, Dave was shaken awake by Anna from Sales.

He drowsily returned to his normal Australian life.


3 full days of koala hugging, surfing and snags later, he suddenly remembered his sleepy promise…

Presentations need to be interactive. I’m going to make something that can engage an audience, let them get excited and allow them to feel heard.

Dave, now largely awake.

After lodging several failed patents for a robotic glove that slaps you awake every 5 seconds, Dave turned to his computer.
Hmmm, what about interactive software?
The interactive presentation software already out there was clunky and rigid.
“Let me have a crack at this” – Dave thought.
A couple of coffees and a few hugged koalas later, Dave had done it…

The world was awestruck

(At least the Australian world was)

They had never seen a tool so intuitive, so interactiveand one that could genuinely make meetings a joy to be part of.

Holy cow what a bloody ripper! These polls, word clouds and Q&As are gonna keep everyone awake eh?

Dave, I liked your robotic slap glove but this AhaSlides is next level! Maybe I won't fire you after all.

Do I know you mate? Hey, wait... aren't you the AhaSlides guy? No way, I'm a huge fan! Hey, sign my VB can?

    Dave had big dreams to spread the joy of engagement to every corner of the globe, so he put out the call in Hanoi, Vietnam…

    It would be bad to say Slytherin, right? We’ll go with the one with the badger. Huffleclaw?

    Far too long. Next question please.

    Hey, a real question! It is and you can! If you’re of sound-ish mind and fewer than 5 transmissable diseases (no limit if working remote), you can check out the available positions on the Jobs page. 

    It’s pronounced however you want buddy. Most people go with A-hah-slides but if an Alan Partridge-style A-haaarrr-slides is more your thing then just go for it.
