Mike Power 2022

Mike Power 2022
Mike Power is the founder and Head of Product at Neuxpower, which he’s been running for the last 25 years. Mike loves nothing better than learning about people’s productivity or software problems and spending time imagining creative solutions. As he says, I’m always happiest when I have a problem to solve. I spend the majority of my time chatting with customers, wireframing product designs, and generally pondering ways to make Neuxpower software more helpful. I’m still on the hunt for a product idea that can surpass our first creation NXPowerLite, which has now exceeded 10 million downloads.

Mike lives in South West London, with his fiancée, three young children, and a slightly crazy Chihuahua named Coco. Away from solving technical problems, his favorite pastime is building, mending and generally fixing things.

In this conversation, Mike talks about his company’s sponsorship of the upcoming Presentation Summit 2022, being held on location in San Diego, CA, and virtually this year from October 9 to 12, 2022. is the official media partner for the Presentation Summit.

Geetesh: Mike, please tell us about Neuxpower and your PowerPoint add-ins.

Mike: Hi Geetesh, our aim at Neuxpower is to create simple software tools that free people from boring computer drudgery, so they can focus on the work that matters most to them.

Our first tool, NXPowerLite is a super-simple yet very effective compression tool to shrink large PowerPoint files in a few seconds without any technical knowledge. It can also compress Word docs, Excel sheets, PDFs, and images too.

Slidewise is our PowerPoint add-in that helps people to check and fix presentation quality issues with ease. It will save frequent PowerPoint users time every day, whether checking and fixing files shared with them, or checking their own decks before sharing them with others – Slidewise makes quality assurance easy.

Geetesh: Can you tell us more about Slidewise, and what makes it an indispensable tool for power-users of PowerPoint?

Mike: Firstly and most obviously is the sheer amount of time it can save when for example, replacing fonts, finding large images, consolidating layouts or cleaning up transitions. Secondly, Slidewise lets you see so much more clearly what’s going on in your PowerPoint decks and that brings a feeling of confidence and being in control that’s hard not to fall in love with – I can’t imagine using PowerPoint without it now.

Watch Slidewise replacing multiple fonts at once:

We show you how to replace some or all of the fonts in your presentation in 4 easy steps using the Slidewise PowerPoint add-in. It takes just seconds and will even replace fonts that PowerPoint skips.

And here consolidating many slide masters and layouts down to one:

It is very easy to end up with multiple slide masters in your presentation, just copying a slide from one deck to another will do it. This causes content inconsistencies, additional maintenance and can also drive up the file size.

Geetesh: Also, what brings you to the Presentation Summit in San Diego?

Mike: We have been pretty regular supporters of the Presentation Summit since its first year, which coincided with us building the first version of NXPowerLite. It is a great event to get face to face with people who spend a lot of time in PowerPoint. We are keen to share our new product Slidewise with this audience and hopefully get some feedback from them on what we’ve built so far and what additional capabilities would make it even more awesome going forward. It’s also a fantastic opportunity to reconnect with the many friends in the community that we have made over the years – we can’t wait!
