The Effective Presentations with PowerPoint course will be helpful to new and experienced presenters alike. It covers all the strategies to create professional, custom-built presentations using Microsoft PowerPoint. Effective Presentations with PowerPoint is the only training guide you will need to create cutting-edge, computer-based presentations and contains almost 5 hours of online learning. When you make a presentation, you have a short window of opportunity to make a powerful impression on your audience. PowerPoint is best used as a visual aid to reinforce the key points which you are emphasizing during the presentation. PowerPoint is a powerful presentation tool but take care not to allow it to overwhelm the message that you want to convey to your audience.

Think carefully about the key points that you want to convey and make the presentation interesting and relevant to your audience. Most of us have been to boardroom talks or seminars where we found ourselves switching off mentally simply because the speaker’s lack of presentation skills actually undermined, rather than enhanced, the message that was being delivered.

Program content

Module 1 examines the preliminary planning and research required and discusses the rehearsal process and how to prepare for logistical problems. Module 2 looks at creating the infrastructure and building the framework for a successful presentation. Module 3 takes you through putting the content in place – how much text to add, when to use images and special effects to drive home a point. Module 4 considers the proper use of slides and demonstrates how to use automatic and manual slideshows and considers which is appropriate for a given presentation. Module 5 looks in depth at the the actual delivery of the presentation and shows how you can produce a dynamic presentation if you put all the elements together.
