What Our Delegates Say

“Many of the assumptions that I previously had about what makes a good PowerPoint presentation were constructively challenged to good effect. I highly recommend this course. Excellent”. “The PowerPoint Presentations training was a hugely useful course, with a good balance of theory, exercises and examples to make the content come to life. The course itself covered a wide range of materials which caused you to recognise and rethink areas that hadn’t been front of mind previously”.  George Andruszkiewicz – Trainer and CMC registered Workplace Mediator- Nevski Ltd

Course Content

Most PowerPoint training is prescriptive and will encourage you to use the standard default options.

This course is tailored, on the day, to reflect the needs of each delegate.

We will include many of the exercises listed below, and any additional material that the trainers feel is relevant.

Basic Principlespowerpoint training

How do you feel about presenting using PowerPoint?

How much is expected of you?

What do you want from the day?

Death by PowerPoint

We’ll look at the experiences we’ve had as presenters and listeners.

What makes for the best and worst PowerPoint presentations?

Sliduments

We look at what people use PowerPoint for.

  • A visual aid
  • A pre-read
  • A handout
  • Presenter notes
  • A decoy or a legal disclaimer

We look at how this multi-purpose role is the main cause of
death by powerpoint and how to remedy it.

What Works

We will look at what already works for us when using PowerPoint.

We will also ask delegates to put their hands up to the traps we all fall into.

Impact

Why do you want it?

What does it really mean?

We’ll look at how PowerPoint can help you get it.

Structure

A flexible pre-set structure is a great way to kick-start PowerPoint content.

It helps shape our ideas so they become clear, logical and compelling.

It can be quickly amended to suit differing time constraints.

Clarity

We look at focussing PowerPoint presentations on key messages.

This will ensure audiences receive the key message we intend.

You have to do all the work for your audience.

Don’t make your audience play ‘Where’s Wally?’

Think Visually

Miscommunication arises when people see the world differently.

Thinking visually helps to solve this.

Thinking visually will enable you to adapt to differing audiences.

Good Practice

We will explore all the best practice tips that we have picked up over the years.

Storyboards

We will use storyboards to help shape impactful PowerPoint presentations.

In this exercise, you will become your own best editor.

You'll learn to use PowerPoint as a visual medium to enhance your key messages.

Having a Go

You will present your polished PowerPoints to the group.

Even if you only create Powerpoints for others, this will really help you to learn to make better choices.

Opening and Closing

We will look at:

Dynamic presentation openings

Effective endings

Words in Tables

A highly effective method for presenting documents or data-heavy slides.

This exercise will reduce the amount of audience effort by 70-80%.

A massive change for your presentations.

The Future

You will identify what specific strategies you will use in the future and how you might develop your unique presentation style.

You’ll be given a variety of useful handouts as reminders of our top tips.

You’ll be given a web link to your videos from the course

Ongoing Support

Two weeks after the course one of your trainers will call to see how you are getting on.

You will have email and telephone access to both of your trainers.

You'll also have access to a course web page containing:

  • Handouts used during the course
  • New supportive material
  • Impact Factory PDF documents
  • Recommended reading
  • Links to our favourite videos
