Description

This course is intended for beginner and inexperienced designers, who aspire to learn Microsoft PowerPoint for professional or private use. No matter if you want to add a new skill to your portfolio, create videos, impress at work or start beeing an online entrepreneur. If you have very little experience with the software or are a total beginner and this will be the first time you open the software - this is the right course for you!

It's your best shot at getting on the right track to becomming a pro in the quickest possible way. I am releasing this content totally FREE of charge because it is also intended to be a prequel to any of my existing and future premium courses. So I am both helping people and making sure that I have a point I can direct people to if they never used PowerPoint :)

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The course has 2 main goals here which I explain right at the beginning and am completely open about:

  1. I want you to get familiar with PowerPoint and teach you a little bit about the program itself and its animation features.

  2. I want to make sure that in case you are interested in my premium courses but are not sure about my teaching style, the pace of my lectures and if you will be prepared enough to enroll them you will be 100% equipped to do so after taking this course.

Sometimes people did ask me to make a very basic introduction to PowerPoint - and I believe such a little Crash Course is the perfect way to be released as free content since you can ensure that you will have the neccesary "prequel" knowledge to understand any other, more advanced course.

All of my courses are fairly beginner friendly but in case you would struggle I encourage you to take this course first to see how it is. If you already know everything that is taought here - you are overqualified and ready to go :)

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hi! My name is Andrzej Pach, also known as Nigel, and I spend my daily time with graphic design, presentations, motion & animation, typography, video editing and online teaching. Most of my work is done in Adobe After Effects & Microsoft PowerPoint 2016 / 2019, so naturally, this is the software I want to teach about and share my experience with you. I have completed more than 4000 graphic projects for clients, mostly including video animations like intros, outros and transitions for various YouTube channels & marketers. On Fiverr alone, I have more than 3500 reviews. I would like to share with you the knowledge that I was able to "stack up" during the process. I am always willing to help people out by enhancing their brand and Internet media projects. 

  Who am I ? 

I am a 30-year-old (born 1989) University Graduate (July 2014). A few years back, after shifting from one hobby to another and getting hired to prepare a website, flyer, and business card for a local business in my area, I finally "felt it." Since then (2011), I have expanded my skills in this area by completing various graphic design and design-related projects. Places like the Warrior Forum, freelancing websites, ad graphic contests across the web caught my interest and have never let me go. 

  What is the next step? 

I spent several years of experience as a freelancer with a keen focus on handling various creative projects ranging from very small business to brands and YouTube channels with over 500k subscribers. Now I’m looking forward to sharing my knowledge by creating exciting courses that are easy to follow - and most important - USEFUL to you. I am looking to work with forward-thinking people who seek to create something original and catchy that will reinforce their brand and follow their vibe. I’m always committed to providing value while giving away random tips to make your workflow easier, no matter what we work on. 

 

What is my mission and passion?

 

                       

I believe in making the Web Business and Internet Marketing world a better place, because my actions will affect my followers, friends, family and future children. Since I live in a small village where people work in agriculture or do physical labor work, I set the goal for me to be a sort of pioneer in the web-based business field, growing myself as a designer every single day.  

 

You can always contact me, as I don't mind talking to anyone about how I might help your business or about what course topics I might record if you like my teaching style.   

   

To your success, Andrzej
