We’re in the homestretch, 2020 is almost behind us. For many businesses this means getting a head start on planning for Q1 and Q2. While planning ahead is important, it’s just as important to end the current year strong. For a lot of teams, the next three weeks will be spent tying up loose ends, pulling final reports, analyzing the competition, and presenting your findings to the company, upper management, and the board. It sounds like a lot, but we’re here to help.

These five presentation templates will help you wrap up 2020 so that you’re in good shape for the new year.

Year-end review

Here’s an obvious one: a year-end review template. If you use any of the presentation templates, let this one be it. 

As you put 2020 to bed, it’s time to reflect on what worked for your business and what didn’t. A year-end review presentation can help you find solutions for any issues, and implement a strategy for company growth moving forward. You’ll ultimately use this end of year review deck to present your findings to investors, upper management, or employees during all-hands meetings. 

Use our year-end review presentation template to summarize how the company performed in 2020, set goals for 2021 and beyond, and outline a strategy to meet said goals.

Board meeting

It’s likely that your board will want to squeeze in one last meeting to wrap up the fiscal year. They’ll want to see your wins for 2020, and your business plans for 2021. 

Make an impression by putting together an impactful presentation with Beautiful.ai’s customizable board meeting presentation template. Our template will help you host a productive, efficient board meeting that reflects on company progress from 2020, refines goals for 2021, and celebrates any company wins.

You may use a board meeting presentation to align on key company initiatives, share updates with the board from Q4 or the entire year, and evaluate past, present and future campaigns or goals. 

Competitive analysis

As you're analyzing your year as a business, you may want to consider taking a look at the competition, too. How did your competitors do this year? What worked for them? How do their strengths and weaknesses compare to yours? The better you understand your competitors, the better chance you have of standing out against them in 2021. 

A competitive analysis report template can help you identify competitors—new and old— in your field, as well as analyze their reach, products or services, areas of operation, online presence, and more. Once you understand your competitors’ strengths and weaknesses, you can create strategies that help you bridge the gaps for the new year. 

Use our competitive analysis report template to analyze your organization’s target market, compare your products or services against competitors, and create 2021 strategies to build stronger market share. 

All-hands meeting

Make sure the entire company is aligned on your 2020 hits and misses. It’s a good idea to gather for an all-hands meeting to wrap up the year with the team. 

These meetings allow separate teams, departments, and employees to connect to one another and brings everyone up to speed on the business goals, projects, and wins. You can accomplish a lot, and round out the year together, if you organize your meeting well. 

Beautiful.ai’s all-hands template is great for sharing departmental and company-wide updates from 2020, reminding your team of the company’s broader vision and goals going into the new year, and highlighting new initiatives for 2021. 

Budget proposal 

Of course, with a new fiscal year comes a new budget. You should take a deeper dive into your 2020 budget to help you plan for 2021. Where can you trim down and reallocate your budget for the new year? Or do you need to request additional funding?

When you need to make your case to managers or executives for additional resources for 2021, a budget proposal presentation is an essential tool. Your presentation should explain your idea, what obstacles you saw in 2020 and what you may come across in 2021, and why your desired budget is necessary for the new fiscal year. 

Use a budget proposal presentation to gain funding for your department, explain the budget for a new project or initiative, or fund new hires for your team in 2021.
