Here is a simple way to create consulting diagrams using PowerPoint by working with PowerPoint Arrow shapes. Follow our step by step tutorial.

### Let us create the first PowerPoint Shape:

The tools we would use to create these diagram are ‘**Shape subtract**’ and ‘**Shape union’** in PowerPoint 2010. If you haven’t got these commands on your quick access toolbar, you can refer our PowerPoint 2010 tutorial here.**Step 1: **

Draw a big arrow in the following shape by pulling the yellow handles in the top corners. This is your base arrow:

**Step 2:**

Draw another arrow and cut it horizontally in two halves. For this, we will use a rectangular box as the cutting knife. So, position the rectangle so that it cuts the arrow in half like this:

**Step 3: **

Now, select shape A (arrow shape) first and then select shape B (rectangle shape). Click on the **‘Shape subtract’ **option. You will get half an arrow shaped like this:

**Step 4:**

Now copy the ‘half arrow’ shape, so you have 2 half arrows.

Flip one of the arrows vertically by going to **Arrange -> Rotate -> Flip vertical **options. Now, all that is left is to arrange the three shapes as follows to get your own consultant diagram. We colored it with red fill to get this result:

### Let us draw the second PowerPoint Arrow:

**Step 1:**

For this, the shapes you need are a rectangle (A), two arrows (B and C) arranged as follows:

Note that B and C are copies of each other. Ensure that all three shapes are aligned properly.**Step 2:**

Select shape A first and then select shape B. Press ‘**Shape subtract**’ option. You will get the following result:

**Step 3:**

Now select this shape and shape C. Press ‘**Shape combine**’ option. You will get the diagram you need.

**Step 4:**

Go to **Format -> 3D rotation **option and select ‘**Perspective right**’.

Go to 3D format option and choose the depth value as **25.**

Your PowerPoint Consulting Diagram is complete and once you fill in some color, the final diagram looks like this:
