Learn Essential PowerPoint Techniques For Your Effective Presentation

Course Code: VTLOKPBX6
Duration: 2 Days (14 Hours)

Delivering a presentation in the office to your colleagues and bosses or presenting to a public audience in seminars is becoming an essential skill in today’s work life.

In any stand up presentation there are two critical components to a great presentation, your delivery and your slides. They require two different sets of skills. This course focuses on your presentation slides which serves as an aid for your audience and to your delivery. PowerPoint builds slides only and slides by themselves do not win deals but it acts as an indicator of your professionalism and quality.

In our 2-day Microsoft PowerPoint 2016 Basic to Intermediate hands-on course you will learn the proper workflow of putting together a presentation. It will highlight the process from start (when you are given a topic) to end (the PowerPoint slides). They go hand in hand which saves time and enables you to be more productive and focused.

You will learn how to manage and work with your PowerPoint slides with good and proper text formatting that will aid in keeping your audience focused during your presentation delivery.

You will also be taught how to add suitable “life” to your presentation through theme colours, backgrounds and images when used appropriately. You will learn how to enhance your presentation slides with PowerPoint 2016 that offers better animation control and a new transition called Morph when used suitably.

Our fun filled Basic to Intermediate Microsoft PowerPoint 2016 course comes with ample practical exercises to allow you to have hands-on practice on the features taught to ensure you better understand the topics covered.
