Recent user reviews:

"This will save so much time" - I am quite a heavy user of PowerPoint but have never formally learned how to use it properly. This course has shown me how incredibly time consuming my ways of using it are - they work, but are very convoluted. The time saving for me will be enormous (not to mention reduction in frustration). Better still, I have learned something that has always bugged me - getting rid of unwanted background from images/logos. That is invaluable for me.

"Fast moving - Step-by-step - Great info" - This is a well paced, well explained course full of useful shortcuts and information for creating professional slides and presentations.
