This workshop is designed for both beginners and advanced users of PowerPoint. 


There’s no getting around it: to be successful in today’s fast-paced, information-centric world, you need PowerPoint skills.  The reason is simple. Most businesses run on presentations.  Hardly anything of importance gets done without them.  Presentations are used for a multitude of activities: approval for strategies, reporting value creation, communicating contract changes, presenting scorecard results, reporting project status, and many more.  Making effective and persuasive presentations could boost your career immeasurably. 

Now while it cannot be stressed enough that PowerPoint skills are critical to business success, they go hand-in-hand with good presentation skills.  So you’ve created a great slide deck…now what?  To really get the results you’re after, you have to use persuasion, exude confidence and even a bit of flair to get people to see things your way. 

You’ve got great ideas, now come learn how to effectively convey them.  The sky is the limit. 

Who should attend?

Professionals who want to become tech-savvy and influential by supplying their companies with expertly designed presentations complemented with persuasive business presentation skills. 

Why this Workshop?

As business professionals, one of the best ways to showcase your work is to deliver a knock-out presentation. Excellent presentations create immense value because they can persuade, get alignment and inspire action.  This workshop not only teaches you the technical skills to work wonders with PowerPoint, but also give you the means, and more importantly, the confidence to transform yourself into a great presenter. 

What Value can I expect? 

You will acquire enhanced proficiency at PowerPoint with knowledge of how to influence others through presentation.
