    The way your slides look and the way they present your message is often forgotten in the flurry of activity around getting content into slides and preparing what to say. But visuals are important. The tone and impact of what you say has to be matched by your slides. Otherwise you can dilute your message or even run the risk of confusing people or distracting from what you want to get across.

    Discover the techniques of preparing slides that are visually aligned to the goal of your presentation. Using the exclusive ‘Represent’ communication system you will understand what to include on your slides, where to put it and even whether to use a slide at all!
    By the end of the training session, you will:
    • understand the principles of slide design
    • know how to select images that support your message
    • be able to choose animation to create clarity and understanding
    • have a successful approach for using your company template
    • know how to make data slides interesting
    • have some handy PowerPoint tips
    The programme will be a mixture of facilitator presentation, hands-on activities, discussion and case study. All the way through you will be applying new techniques to your own work.

    Participants should bring a laptop and some of their own slides that they can work on.

    Who should attend
    Is this course for me?

    If you ever make presentation slides? Yes!
    No boring lectures. Andy delivers enjoyable, interactive and thought-provoking training by providing activities that participants work on together and discuss. They can be productive tasks, or fun games, but they are always relevant.

    Time to have a go. The training environment he creates is a space where people have the freedom to try things out in safety, and to practise and improve what they do. Andy offers these practice opportunities to give people the confidence to head back into the workplace with tried and tested tools.
    Your slides on how pictures should be displayed on the slides were fantastic. They do have an effect and I have not really thought in that way before.

    The workshop was very interactive and had lots of examples to work on.

    I have been a trainer for 11 years and I have attended various presentation skills workshops. I am very confident in saying that this workshop is the best among all. It combines theoretical knowledge, a practical approach and skills practice all together. It will surely make each and every participant come out a better presenter. Thank you Andy for the magnificent experience of learning and fun!
