...the story of freshinsight
Hi, I’m Deon Pollard and Ive been working major business and technology endeavours as an architect/consultant for a long time now.
What I’ve learnt along the way is that keeping things simple is not always simple, but that it is critical to achieving successful outcomes for clients. Along the way I constructed tools to help me in these very challenging projects. As they have worked so well for me and helped my clients achieve successful outcomes time and again, I decided (based on desire expressed by many coleagues and clients) to make them available commercially.
The offering is called freshInsight and at present 5 go to tools are included. In the spirit of simplicity they are available for purchase over the web If you are interested in other options not available here drop me a mail, and we can discuss.
Thanks, hope you enjoy and I’m always keen to hear your thoughts

go-to Tool for envisioning & crafting a Solution. Set consist of design Templates, Approach and notational structure for defining Solutions. Typically used to inform downstream projects or become the basis for Solution Architecture
FreshInsight for DealMaking
Although freshInsight is positioned as the Master Consultants Toolkit, new learnings shows it to be extremely effective in supporting dealmaking.
We are using the same Toolkit, the real difference is in the way you apply it.
Like Dealmaking, Account Managers are also struggling to bring new Insight and the right angle to the Client conversation. Early trials very promising.
Powerpoint DataPump Tool will allow you to rapidly create Data driven shapes in Powerpoint.
Ideal for Solution/Enterprise Architects wanting to show big pictures with domain/element information driven by external data.
