How to Design an ENGAGING PowerPoint Presentation

Have you ever experienced a BORING PowerPoint presentation?

Would you like to know how to avoid the common pitfalls of a bad PowerPoint presentation?

In this class, we will be focusing on the creation & design aspects of a PowerPoint Presentation.

You will:

  • Learn how to design an effective presentation using PowerPoint so that it MAXIMIZES audience engagement.
  • Learn to structure & organize your PowerPoint presentations for maximum effectiveness.
  • Discover what constitutes a visual presentation.
  • Understand how good storytelling binds a good presentation together, especially if your presentation is data-oriented.
  • Most importantly, understand what NOT to do when creating your PowerPoint presentations.

This is a fun & eye-opening class.

Note: This is NOT a training on the technical functionality of PowerPoint. Rather, we look at how to incorporate the human element into the design of your PowerPoint slides to ensure audience engagement.
