WALTHAM, Mass., and LIVERPOOL, England — March 17, 2011 - Brainshark, Inc., the leader in online and mobile video presentations, today announced a strategic partnership with m62 visualcommunications, the global leader in presentation effectiveness. Through the partnership, m62 will resell Brainshark’s enterprise offerings in the U.K. and across the globe – extending the benefits of Brainshark to a wider audience and enabling users, with as little as a PowerPoint deck and a phone, to instantly create high-impact video presentations.

With tens of millions of PowerPoint presentations created every single day, m62 and Brainshark are dedicated to helping companies create attention-grabbing content and ferret out presentation pitfalls. Headquartered in Liverpool, England, with additional offices in New York and Singapore, m62 provides services ranging from presentation design to advanced PowerPoint and presentation skills training. m62 has produced more than 10,000 presentations to date for its clients worldwide, including blue-chip brands such as Ford, Hewlett-Packard and Microsoft, helping secure billions of dollars’ worth of contract wins for its clients.

"Today more than ever, companies face the need to extend and improve their messages on a worldwide scale,” said Nick Oulton, founder of m62. “We’re pleased to partner with Brainshark and enable our customers in the U.K. and globally to deliver their business communications on-demand – saving money when it’s not necessary or practical to meet face-to-face, ensuring consistency in delivery and tapping into Brainshark’s real-time data that shows how messages are being received."

Brainshark enables users to add their voice – along with music, video clips, attachments and more – to PowerPoint decks and other documents to create online video presentations. With one Brainshark presentation viewed every 2.5 seconds in locations all over the world, Brainshark lets users quickly and regularly create content that can be updated on-the-fly and viewed on-demand, including from smartphones and tablets. In addition, Brainshark’s tracking capabilities allow users to see who viewed their presentation, when and how long it was watched, how questions were answered and more.

Dave Fitzgerald, executive vice president for Brainshark, said: "m62 has a unique understanding of how to combine visual and verbal communications to create more effective presentations that increase sales win rates, marketing conversions and overall revenue. We’re excited by this partnership, which allows companies to benefit from both m62's deep presentation expertise, as well as Brainshark's ability to reach online and mobile audiences, anytime and anywhere."

As part of the partnership, m62 and Brainshark will also host a U.K. roadshow from March 22-24, providing advice on how to create effective and engaging presentations for online and mobile audiences.
