Be kind to your audience – no more “death by dull PowerPoint!” Learn to consider your target audience, then plan a dynamic, engaging presentation with appropriate background theme, graphics, transitions, animation and sound. Create consistency by designing your slide master for repeat elements. Use picture tools to position, size and enhance images including SmartArt, WordArt and the insertion of tables and charts from Excel or Word. Confidently save/package your presentation so that it opens perfectly when it’s time to present, even on a different computer. Electronic course manual (pdf) included.
