Before you read what I have to say, see what my students are saying about my courses on PowerPoint:

“Anyone who wants to exceed the expectations set by himself / Seniors / peers. It is very important to convey the Right ideas in a right format through a right medium. Guns don't kill as much as Powerpoint bullets. I made my mind to be a Subscriber of all of his courses after seeing his free videos which makes me think that I am actually in a real class and learning it by practising it. ” by Biswajeet Pattnaik , M&A Specialist (Finance and Petrochemical industry), SABIC , Saudi Arabia.

"I would like to tell you that I am very impressed with your courses so far - I particularly like the short videos that allow me to get to a topic quickly and then move on (your competitors mostly offer 20-30 min videos which is a bit much to keep one's attention span). The other gem in your training are the shortcuts, I found no other course with the same insights." by Peter Klugsberger, Australia, ex-McKinsey & Co., served various senior roles (CEO, COO) in various companies

Your Question - Why should I take this mini-course on PowerPoint?

Our Response - I frequently visit “Investor Relations” section of numerous companies. Every now and then, I come across new trends and techniques. On one such occasion, I stumbled upon an Investor Presentation of a Global Auto major (BMW Jan 2014). I was mesmerized by the look of a certain slide. The picture was able to focus on a specific geographical area and allow more text to be written. I termed this as “Magnifier”. 

Similarly, there are many more such techniques which you ll be able to learn - all at one place. This will help you speed up slide creation and add Punch to your message.
