Microsoft Powerpoint : Presentation Design

One Day Course

Now Available As Online Training!

Overview

Presentation design can be a huge challenge to non-designers. The pressure to make your presentation stand out to win a bid or sell an idea can be overwhelming if your design skills aren’t up to scratch.

In just one-day our Microsoft Powerpoint Presentation Design course will teach you the principles of messaging, visuals and design. Helping you to create PowerPoint presentations that will evoke an emotional connection with your audience and keep them engaged.

If you have no experience using PowerPoint we would recommend sitting our Microsoft PowerPoint Introduction course before attending. If you would also like to improve your presentation delivery, we would recommend sitting our Public Speaking course after.

The 5 things you will get out of this course:

• Define your audience
• Use the correct images and videos
• Incorporate brand storytelling
• Apply all design principles
• Understand Powerpoint best practice


There are no requirements for attending this course.
