How powerful are your presentations?

 Nov 16, 2016

Microsoft PowerPoint can be your most powerful ally in a presentation (pun definitely intended). You can also make the fatal error of letting PowerPoint drag your meeting down: complex, messy slides detract from your message and bore your audience.

In the following posts, our Office Applications trainers explore:

  • The PowerPoint Designer feature
  • How to create custom shows
  • Working with transparent images

…all things that can help you keep your presentations tight and on track.

For more information, take a look at New Horizons’ PowerPoint training courses.

If your PowerPoint slides are schmick but you want to work on your presentation content and delivery, we also offer Presentation Mastery training.
