Presentation Slide Essentials

Creating excellent slides is essential to any good presentation. This workshop focuses on the techniques to prepare memorable slides that add depth to the message of your presentation. 

This highly interactive and practical workshop will help you to create consistent and attractive slides whilst maintaining your organisations image and branding. Participants will use the workshop concepts to progressively create a set of their own slides. At the end of the workshop you will present your slides to the workshop group.

The workshop focuses on the design of slides, not the technicalities of using presentation software. Your workbook will however, show you 'how to guides' which demonstrate various PowerPoint software tools.
