Amateur presenters make the mistake of thinking that the more multimedia wizardry they can put in their dog-and-pony shows, the more effective they are. Not true. No amount of technological pyrotechnics can make up for poor organization or weak delivery skills.

Whether you present for a living … present occasionally … or have never presented before, enhanced PowerPoint skills will make your job easier — and your presentations far more professional.

This course shows you how to use the incredible capabilities of PowerPoint to put together presentations that are …

  • Well-constructed
  • Engaging and entertaining
  • Pleasing to the eye
  • Properly paced
  • Unmistakably clear in their message
