Awesome PowerPoint Techniques for Effective Presentations

This On-Demand event was originally presented on December 22, 2021 (60 min)


Why are most presentations so bad? Truly terrible? They’re too wordy, text-based, and generally dull. They don’t tell stories that engage, excite, or inspire. And, they generally do little to actually help people learn. They are linear and non-responsive with no interaction. Pretty much everything you know doesn’t work to convey information effectively. Few people enjoy creating, delivering, or watching PowerPoint presentations, so let’s change that.

This session is packed full of techniques to create mind-blowing presentations. Want to know how to create visual slides, manipulate images, master animations, make it interactive, and produce presentations that will astound your audience? Then come along for a masterclass in ways to capture your audience’s attention and help them learn.

This is a highly practical session in which we’ll look at techniques to create amazing slides that work effectively, apply them to real-life before and after examples, and look at how to use those skills on many other slides when you’re developing your own presentations. And, because it’s all live in a single session, you can see just how quick it is to create compelling visual presentation content – so there’s no excuse for bullet point slides! So, don your thinking caps, and get ready to critique some dreadful ‘before’ slides and take part in transforming them into truly mind-blowing presentations that will energize your audience and make your next training course the best ever.

Attendees will learn

  • How to create dynamic visuals that support persuasive stories.
  • How to develop professional looking designs for presentations and other content.
  • How to make interactive visual content to engage your audience, whether in person or online.
  • How to become a PowerPoint legend with techniques to make effective presentations quickly and easily.
