Training Course: Powerful PowerPoint Presentations

Training Course Overview

You are expected to present with PowerPoint at team meetings, project reviews, customer meetings, and countless other occasions. Unfortunately, you have never received any training in how to create effective presentations, and nearly all presentations you have ever attended were poorly designed.

So, your audience begins tuning out by the fourth slide. By slide eight, their eyes are sore and they begin tapping on their smartphone. By slide 15, they are dreading even showing up to your presentation.
