Our corporate design guidelines also apply to on-screen presentations. The corporate PowerPoint templates detailed here are binding for all corporate or customer presentations across the Bayer Group. In view of the innumerable internal and external PowerPoint presentations created by Bayer staff worldwide, a consistent brand appearance is just as indispensable in this medium. On the one hand, these templates ensure brand image consistency and strengthen the corporate icon; on the other hand, they allow a degree of creative and conceptual freedom to ensure proper localization and customer relevance.


Presentation Composing


General rules

When new presentations or charts are created, these PowerPoint templates are binding for all parts of the Group. This particularly applies to frequently used corporate or customer presentations. As all the data are regularly updated, please check to see if you have the latest version before creating a presentation. Please use the 16:9 format for new presentations. You can easily include 4:3 charts in the 16:9 templates – please check out the “how to guide”.

Please note that Bayer employees can also access the up-to-date PPT templates by opening Microsoft Office > PowerPoint and then by clicking on “file” > new > my Templates > Bayer Global. There you can find only 16:9 template files.

The images on the front cover of each PowerPoint presentation can be adjusted individually, i.e. you can insert specific images that represent, for example, the key activities of your division. A number of images have been specially selected for use in PowerPoint presentations. We would advise you, wherever possible, to use the images provided with the templates in the PowerPoint chapter.


It is also possible to use different photos from the Media Pool photo library. However, the character of the images on front covers must comply with the CD guidelines as presented in the Key Elements – Photography section.

All the PowerPoint templates available here have been primarily developed for use on Windows PCs. They should, however, work on Mac computers as well.

If you want to use an Apple iPad for a presentation, please download the free PowerPoint app via the App Store. This app enables you to present, but not to edit. If you do not want to use the app, we recommend that you convert your presentations to a PDF format, which functions smoothly on such devices.
