Giving a presentation? If you want to avoid boring your audience to tears, this course is a must!
Almost anyone can piece together a PowerPoint presentation. However, most presentations are filled with bullet point lists, thick paragraphs of text, and the occasional picture in a desperate attempt to break up the monotony. You can do better than that! This course shows you ways to turn standard content into something that’s actually interesting to your audience.
Taught by presentation skills expert, Kelly Vandever, and TEDx speaker Dr. Rebecca Heiss, Power Up PowerPoint shows you don’t have to be a graphic designer to create beautiful, impactful slides. Learn how to ditch the default settings and “amp up” your slides, so you can deliver your message with power and influence.
Knowing how to create a PowerPoint slide is one thing. Knowing how to design informative and appealing slides is something different! As Roger Courville, author of The Virtual Presenters, says “PowerPoint doesn’t teach you to create effective slides any more than Microsoft Word teaches you how to be a good writer”. But this course will! During Power Up PowerPoint, you’ll learn ways to heighten your PowerPoint skillset and create presentations that will keep your participants engaged and inspired.
