Description

Hi! My goal for this course is to teach you, with as little BS as possible, how to create and deliver a compelling, effective, and attractive presentation.

  • Create attractive slides by learning design strategies for color, font, images, layout, and visual hierarchy.
  • Prepare your script and deliver your talk confidently

After you finish this course, you'll have everything you need to build your next big presentation.
