Paula,

: does not necessarily mean "Here comes a bulleted list." The colon is fine
before any long series.
I believe Strunk and White address this very point in "Elements of Style"
or maybe it was Sheridan Baker . . .

In any case, I'd set off the phrase "Do you want your staff to:" with
a bold font, perhaps a different font face from the rest of the brochure.
