ABOUT THE EPISODE
You’re on the 18 th slide of the presentation. Almost done. And then you realize you’ve missed a category – which means you have to redesign 70% of what you’ve already finished. We’ve all been there. Fortunately – leveraging automation & Ai, Beautiful.ai’s presentation engine solves this exact problem. Engineers simplify creativity.

And what’s next beyond this? Will engineers start learning more design, and vice- versa? What about staffing at agencies, how will that change in the age of Ai? What does more time on content and context allow designers to do?

Just as driven today as when she first started out, her succinctness and energy can’t be missed!
