Create and Lay Out PowerPoint Presentations

(Two Hours)

Many business presenters make it a common practice to utilize PowerPoint when called upon to communicate on the job. PowerPoint slides are commonly used in business presentations such as user group meetings, during product or service pitches at customer sites and in employee orientation programs. PowerPoints have become so common in the business world that one would be hard-pressed to find another presentation tool in use in a presentation environment. While there are those who are quite adept with using PowerPoint, even the most experienced presenter can use some assistance with the proper way to lay out and create PowerPoint slides. These power users simply need some tips and tricks on how to use the application to their advantage.

Our two-hour training program, Create and Lay Out PowerPoint Presentations is designed for experienced PowerPoint users who need that extra guiding hand in learning how to create the most effective slides for use in the classroom or the conference room. This is an advanced training session that focuses solely on how to create and lay out slides, not how to use PowerPoint.

The ability to create effective PowerPoint slides is sometimes lost on even the most experienced speakers. Some PowerPoint slides are convoluted and overflowing with too much information. We teach presenters how to create a presentation that will have the greatest possible impact on an audience. By building upon the existing PowerPoint presentation skills of participants, we focus on structure, layout, format, flow and how to create visually appealing slides.

The advanced Create and Lay Out PowerPoint Presentations program utilizes various teaching methods to reinforce the concepts we teach. These valuable PowerPoint presentation skills can be used whether one has to deliver a presentation only once or on a repeated basis. Attendees will learn by getting to create sample PowerPoint slides that can be implemented following the training session. Discussion sessions, exercises and other training activities allow participants to put to use the skills taught in Create and Lay Out PowerPoint Presentations. This approach enables participants to learn by doing so that PowerPoint skills are real and tangible.

Create and Lay Out PowerPoint Presentations (Two Hours) participants will learn to:

  • Build on existing PowerPoint skills to strengthen presentations
  • Learn how to create and lay out slides that add to a presentation‘s effectiveness
  • Effectively create slides so as to reinforce the topic being presented
  • Understand the importance of "white space" on a slide
  • Utilize design concepts to create visually appealing PowerPoint slides
  • Communicate more effectively when using PowerPoint slides
  • Create individual slides for use following the workshop
  • Structure the flower of a PowerPoint presentation to gain maximum effect
  • Understand what design flaws can detract from presentation effectiveness
  • Integrate skills to enhance personal effectiveness via future PowerPoint usage
