About this Course

Microsoft PowerPoint 2013 provides you with a variety of tools that help you to deliver dynamic and versatile presentations. Day 1 will cover how to take advantage of these tools, giving you shortcuts and time saving tips to help you create informative and resourceful presentations.

Armed with your newly taught expertise, day 2 will then provide you with the skills to present your creations with confidence to any audience.

During the latter half of day 2, you will create a short PowerPoint presentation using the skills you have attained from day 1 and deliver it to the group who will give feedback on your presentation. If requested, the presentations can be done in groups if numbers allow.

Target Audience

The course is designed for delegates who would like to learn Microsoft PowerPoint 2013 and presenting skills from scratch. No prerequisite PowerPoint knowledge is necessary as the course runs from the creation and basics to the more technical aspects of the software, such as types of diagrams, special effects and custom slide shows. Day 2 will cover the non-technical skills of body language, eye contact, presentation structure and handling audience questions.
