Connecting Cultures for Southwest Airlines


Connecting Cultures is a small company in Washington, DC whose mission is to educate government and corporate clients on diversity in the workplace. I became completely enamored with owner, Luby Ishmail. Her positive spirit in the face of adversity just won me over and we went on to create three presentations together.

In this particular piece, Connecting Cultures pitches their services to educate Southwest Airlines’ employees on the importance of treating all passengers with respect, regardless of their faith or ethnicity.

Bullet points were kept to a minimum to help maintain a consistent flow to the presentation, which features large sweeping skyscape images which spread the distance of several frames, creating a panoramic and hopeful feeling for the audience.

Before working with Susan Preston, my presentations were plain, dull and flat. Through conversations and exchanges, her thorough research to understand me and my company, Susan captured my message, mission and intended audiences resulting in elevating my company’s stature and professional delivery of workshops and keynotes. Her animated designs are tailored to my message that moves my audiences.
Susan’s powerpoint designs and development leads my customers to select my company over other competitors. I can’t underestimate her command of design that makes all the difference. You will not be disappointed by her and Clearly Presentable! The best investment I have made is in Susan Preston.
– Luby Ismail, President, Connecting Cultures

There were two chapters in this presentation. When the first speaker handed over the reigns to discuss why the team was uniquely qualified to meet Southwest Airlines’ needs, the background changed to a dramatic sunset with warm, friendly tones. The piece ends with a personal story that appealed to Southwest Airlines values of working with heart and authenticity.
