Microsoft PowerPoint has a lot of features. Knowing the right ones to help you deliver your message effectively while giving you confidence in front of the room is the goal of this session. 

Beyond creating a basic slide deck in PowerPoint, there are all the features that can help you be a stellar presenter. After a brief review of crafting a basic slide deck with an outline, this session will cover PowerPoint features that support you as a presenter so you can put your best foot forward. For example:

  • What makes a slide effective?
  • How much content is too much content on a slide?
  • How to navigate during a presentation without getting lost in the deck
  • The role of the handout and speaker notes and why they’re both different from the presentation file
  • How to employ some basic animation features to get your ideas across

Dealing with contributors and collaborators can be a challenge when maintaining branding and format consistency are important. In this session, we’ll introduce you to the slide master and how you can use it to make modifications not make for hours of extra work.

Why you should Attend

Presenting to colleagues in the workplace is one of the most effective ways to elevate your professional profile within your organization. While speaking in public remains at the top of the fear list for most adults, knowing how to set yourself up for success by utilizing the correct features of PowerPoint help get you past that barrier.

Last-minute changes can really throw an inexperienced presenter, to learn how to make modifications quickly and without losing branding or consistency in look and feel.
