Presenting with PowerPoint

This half-day workshop will discuss proven methods to create software presentations which are most effective at getting your message across.

First-time presenters will learn how to engage an audience of any size confidently; practiced speakers will build on the skills they already have and hopefully give up some of their bad habits.

Programs like PowerPoint, Keynote and Impress can help you create easy-to-deliver presentations, but they don't ensure your content is clear and compelling to your audience. You will learn some of the pitfalls to avoid and how to plan, prepare and present to the highest standards. The topics covered include:

  • Why use presentation software?
  • What makes a slideshow good or bad?
  • How to avoid "death by PowerPoint"
  • Presentation structures that work
  • Top tips and features you should be using

Although some program features will be mentioned in the context of why they are important, this workshop is not intended to train you in how to use the software in great detail. You will not be using PowerPoint "hands on", and do not need to bring a laptop with you, just paper, pencil and an open mind.

Driving lessons teach two equally important things: firstly the rules of the road, how to drive and the guidance of the Highway Code; and secondly how to operate a car's controls to actually move around. Our presentation skills workshops teach you how to present in the first sense, but will not explain in detail how to use specific functions of presentation software tools.

If you use Microsoft PowerPoint then these workshops are ideally supplemented by a training course at Intermediate or Advanced level to get the most out of your software.
