Build PowerPoint Presentations that Enhance Your Message

We think “Death by PowerPoint” should be an officially recognized condition! PowerPoint is so easy to use and so full of eye catching functionality that people lose sight of what an effective presentation should look like and what it should contain.

There are guidelines and best practices when it comes to creating PowerPoint presentations. Knowing which tools and techniques work best in various situations could be the difference between a stimulating or sleep inducing presentation.

In this 6 hour workshop we will cover how to create PowerPoint presentations that are designed for maximum business effectiveness, so you can deliver your message successfully.

Topics will include:

  • Essential Elements of a Slide
  • Creating Consistency with Slide Masters
  • Guidelines and Best Practices
  • Using Graphics Effectively
  • Animation and Motion Paths
  • Reusing Existing Slides
  • Transitions vs. Animation
  • Creating Custom Shows
  • Linking to External Data
  • Web Broadcasts
  • Presentation Tips and Tricks

This workshop session will be instructor-led, hands-on and specifically designed for maximum retention and understanding.

Each student will have use of a computer during the day and practice exercises will be provided for each topic.

All students will have access to full support via telephone and email after the session.
