Successfully communicating – and ultimately motivating actions you want – is the core to success in business. In these descriptions, you’ll find the full stack of tools and skills you need to make things happen.
What we can teach
Microsoft PowerPoint is an excellent visual design program for creating slides and visual aids. Unfortunately, it gets a bad rap for being boring and tedious – let’s fix that. Learn not only how to push the right buttons, but what constitutes a good presentation.
Most businesspeople believe that ‘design’ is about choosing colors and fonts – mostly irrelevant details to their day-to-day operations. In fact, design is just another word for communication – the most critical business skill. A properly designed element will communicate its message more quickly and effectively, creating more of the result you’re looking for.
Designing a successful presentation is about much more than the beauty of the slides – in fact, it often includes turning off the presentation software! In this class, we’ll learn to build a presentation – a communication experience that reaches the audience where they are, and moves them to where you want them to go.
Successful delivery of a presentation is not the removal of ‘ums’ and ‘uhs’ – it is in finding a way to connect with your material and the audience. Great presenters don’t all sound like movie announcers, they don’t wear pinstripe suits, and they’re not billionaire CEOs. Great presenters are a particular version of themselves.
