PowerPoint(R) Unplugged

Program Description

Can your staff demonstrate the basics of good presentation delivery skills?

PowerPoint is a powerful tool that is intended to support presenters—not compete with or detract from them. That's why giving a truly polished and memorable presentation with PowerPoint starts with 'pulling the plug' on PowerPoint: setting the laptop aside and focusing first on what to say and how to say it—and then on the tools to maximize audience impact.

This new course encourages participants to rethink and sharpen their presentation skills to achieve greater polish, poise and self-confidence and an optimal audience experience.

  • Stay focused on the message, not the medium
  • Get practical tips for effective interaction between the presenter and the screen, computer and projector
  • Achieve simplicity in PowerPoint slides while still holding the audience’s interest—even when dealing with technical jargon
