We have all been there. We have attended conferences with one ‘death-by-PowerPoint’ presentation after another and wondered if there was another way. The good news is that there is. There are techniques to use the strength of PowerPoint (visual reinforcement) without making it a bland reading of bullet points.This course does not teach PowerPoint features, but instead how to use your slides in a more engaging way so that your presentation is memorable and effective.
