A well-thought-out and constructed PowerPoint presentation can be an extremely effective way of communicating complex information quickly and efficiently to a range of audiences including senior officials and decision makers. Hence, the ability to prepare and deliver effective PowerPoint presentations is a foundation skill for many in both the public and private sectors.
A combination of examples, discussions, and hands-on exercises will be used to assist participants in drafting presentations that are well organized, logical in terms of delivering content and messages, and easy to follow. Templates and checklists for planning, drafting and editing presentations will be reviewed and provided to participants.
Note: this course focuses on the development and organization of content for a PowerPoint presentation and not on the technical capabilities of PowerPoint software.
