Duration: 1 day

Description: As usual, our course “Death by PowerPoint in Practice” is not like any other course in PowerPoint on the market. Our focus is to provide you with an education that is just what you need! Of course, we will give you exactly the technical skills that you need, and the aesthetic skills in how to make your PowerPoint look awesome, but that´s not all. After completing this course, you will know exactly how to deal with the cognitive limitations of your next audience and make sure they understand what you mean and remember what you said.

 

Our teachers know all features in all versions of PowerPoint, only so we can make your life easier!

You may bring your own laptop so you get to work in your own version of PowerPoint and in your own computer environment. If you don’t have a laptop, we will provide you with one throughout the course. Our goal is for you to get as much as possible out of this course, so we do recommend you bring an already existing Power Point you regularly use. Together we´ll either rebuild or start from scratch, depending on your preference, where you get full support, help and coaching. Groups are limited to 6 people to be able to give everyone as much support and assistance as they need to build their PowerPoints.
