Summer Workshop:

Awesome PowerPoint Techniques for Effective Visual Presentations

with Richard Goring

Friday, July 17 & Friday, July 24, 2020

VIRTUAL - LINK IN REGISTRATION EMAIL

11:00Am – 1:00pm

Two part workshop to learn how to revolutionize your presentations and other training material with visuals, diagrams, and animated sequences, all using standard PowerPoint. This workshop will be facilitated over two two-hour sessions on consecutive Fridays. Your registration includes access to both the sessions - watch out for the rest of the details in your registration email.

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 work together on creating some amazing slides and visual sequences that work effectively, and look at how to use those skills on many other slides when you’re developing your own presentations. 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, 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.

Participants will be able to:

  • Create dynamic visuals that support persuasive stories to engage your audience
  • Develop professional looking designs for presentations and other content
  • Make interactive visual content to engage your audience, whether in person or online.
  • Produce navigable presentations so that you can respond to your audience.
  • Become a PowerPoint legend with techniques to make effective presentations quickly and easily
