Everyone agrees that most presentations have room for improvement. But how does one move beyond the dreaded slide show of bulleted lists? What skills and techniques are needed to create a vivid and memorable slide deck? And, how can anyone do this when pressed for time?
You will explore three major areas of presentation design and delivery: organizing your information, using graphic design elements with the appropriate technological tools, and connecting with your audience by understanding the performance aspects of presentation.
