If you think you could use some help, join us for this idea-packed program and learn the right way to use all of the features PowerPoint offers and techniques to make your next presentation shine.   (more details below)


WHY ATTEND

When delivering a presentation, you and your message should be the star of the show … not your Powerpoint slides. Your visuals must support your message, not distract from it with overdone flying text, distracting animations and frivolous graphics. There’s a better way.

This class assumes a basic understanding of MS PowerPoint.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

In this webinar, you will learn how to:

  • Avoid text overload by replacing words with tables, charts, SmartArt, audio and video
  • Work with video and audio files in PowerPoint including trimming audio, applying fades and embedding files
  • Use advanced animation techniques with timing control and special effects. And most importantly—how NOT to use animation
  • Applying animations to charts and SmartArt.
  • Working with images & text: wrapping, corrections, adjustments, styles, layers, groupings, etc.
