Instructor Biography

Brad Hircock, Udemy Teacher

Hi, I work full time creating presentations using Keynote and PowerPoint.

I'm passionate about creating the highest quality presentations possible with great content and a polished design, making the job of the audience as easy as possible.

The courses I teach train you in the methods that I've used to create presentation for stakeholders from project directors, right through to C-level executives, including CEO's.

There's a lot of good content here and hopefully we'll have some fun along the way!
