PowerPoints® SIMPLIFIED! Building Presentations for Maximum Impact


Have you ever sat through a dull or confusing PowerPoint presentation and walked away wondering, “Now, what do I do with that information?” Do you worry that your own audiences may feel the same thing about your PowerPoints?

Join us for “PowerPoints® SIMPLIFIED!” and learn strategies and tested methods for engaging audiences in content to move them to action. Participants will walk away with a checklist of key questions to help build effective presentation decks that meets the needs of the audience and the objectives of the presenter.

Learning objectives:

  • Recognize and remove common obstacles that sabotage presentations
  • Identify strategies to truly connect with your audience
  • Implement simple design strategies to enhance your messaging (including how to best share large amounts of data within a presentation)
  • Review presentation tips to maximize results

Hot Tip: There are many “rules” on the use of bullets on PowerPoint slides. Some are adamant the magic number is 3; some say 4. Some say use no more than seven words per slide! So many rules that one could be tempted to throw up their hands and cry “UNCLE!” and use as many bullets as will fit on the slide, or rebel and use no bullets at all. Instead, use good design sense to keep bullets short by removing unnecessary words, split large amounts of content into separate slides and sub-sections, and ensure that your font size is readable in the back of the room. That’s the secret for discovering the magic number of bullets to use in your presentation!
