Presentation Slide Essentials

This extremely practical workshop focuses on techniques to prepare memorable, understandable and attractive slides that add depth to the message of your presentation. You will use these techniques to create your own set of slides and present these to the group.

The emphasis is on the design of slides rather than the technicalities of using presentation software. However, your workbook will contain ‘how to’ guides which demonstrate various PowerPoint tools.
