As Roger Courville, author of The Virtual Presenters says - PowerPoint doesn’t teach you to do effective slides anymore than Microsoft Word teaches you how to be a good writer. But this course will! During Power Up Your PowerPoint you'll see and experience how creating effective slides will improve your presentations. Specifically, you'll learn:

    ·Why the default settings are hurt the effectiveness of presentation slides

    ·The step-by-step process for creating effective slides

    ·How to revise existing slides to be more effective

    ·How to increase audience retention through the design of your slides

    ·Where to find free and low cost photographs for your presentations

    ·The Rule of Thirds and other practical techniques to make slides look their best

    ·Why there’s no such thing as too many slides

    ·Other exciting things you can do to liven up your presentation slides
