FAQ's

Can I complete this course using PowerPoint?

The course is built around preparing presentations using Keynote and many of the lectures contain specific Keynote walkthroughs. What I'm demonstrating can be created in PowerPoint (or any other presentation app) but the focus of this course is all about Keynote.

Is this really all it takes to create a Killer Keynote?

These are the first steps that you can start actioning immediately to make noticeable improvement in the quality of your Keynotes. I'm constantly updating the course and am currently working on updated content for the latest version, Keynote 6.0 (of course if you're already signed up you'll have instant, free access to all of these updates).

Who is the target audience?
  • Whether you're new to Keynote or have been using it for years but were never quite comfortable with concepts such as build animations, this course will get you up to speed.

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!
