Nicknamed “The Presentation Guy” by some of his early clients, he adopted that as the name of his design company and has never looked back. Jole is originally from Maryland and saw the need for presentation designers in Silicon Valley, so he moved to San Francisco to work on presentations for large companies like Facebook, Google, Microsoft, YouTube, Gap, and Workday. He’s now a LinkedIn Learning author with several classes under his belt, and recently started a podcast “Presentation Junkies” with his good friend Lisa Marie Grillos.
