Who should attend
This class is for presenters who are familiar with PowerPoint features but need to get better at delivering presentations and conveying information effectively.
Worried your audience will find your presentation difficult to follow, or worse, boring? It’s one thing to carefully put all your insights and data into a presentation, but it’s another thing entirely to keep an audience engaged as you deliver it. You’ll also need to optimize your slides so they’re easy for you to narrate and easy for your audience to understand and remember. This class gives you the tools and techniques to make sure your presentations will be enjoyed, understood, and remembered (even if you’re not a high-energy speaker).
Engaging Presentations. We’ll show you what to know about your audience, how to adapt your presentation to them, how to use storytelling techniques, and how to get your audience to grasp and remember critical points.
Optimal Slide Content. We’ve all seen slides crammed with too many bullets and images. We’ll teach you the rules for when to make the difficult decision to drop content. You’ll also learn multiple ways to make content available outside your presentation. We’ll also teach you how to selectively emphasize the most important content, and when to use animations and humor.
Design Considerations. PowerPoint isn’t Photoshop, so it’s surprising how design choices can make the difference between a dull and an engaging presentation. Learning just a few simple design rules will make a big difference in how well your audience receives your presentation. Whether image backgrounds, white space, or fonts, following a few design rules and norms will ensure you create nothing but “clean” slides!
