Jan 25 @ 9:00 am – 11:30 am

PowerPoint is a test of basic marketing skills. To have a compelling presentation, you need to demonstrate design skills, technical literacy, and a sense of personal style. If the presentation has a problem, like an unintended font, a broken link, or unreadable text, then you probably failed the test. Even if your spoken presentation is well-rehearsed, a bad visual experience can ruin it for the audience. Expertise means nothing without an excellent presentation to back it up. Don’t let PowerPoint decide how you use PowerPoint. Learn how to create custom slide designs and impressive presentations in this engaging class with Microsoft Certified Trainer Deborah Dunbar.
