PowerPoint Animations to Create Engaging Presentations

This On-Demand event was originally presented on December 21, 2022 (60 min)


Animation is a critical component in presentations. It paces the flow of information, making things clearer for your audience. It supports more effective storytelling, with the visuals and animations doing a lot of the work, helping people understand the key points. And it can be used to produce beautiful-looking presentations, with the animation enhancing your design, making everything appear more professional.

But it can also be terrible. If you use the bounce animation, then you should probably go back to 35mm slides. In this session, you’ll learn how to use animation to great effect. Elegance and purposefulness are the names of the game, as you see the ways in which just the right animation or combination of effects can bring your story to life, capturing your audience’s attention and keeping them engaged.
