PowerPoint Course – Beyond the Basics

Why Attend

Meetings, instruction, training, pitches; these are all a part of our daily lives. We
are often called upon to deliver presentations with little notice, at multiple venues,
and with varying requirements. And, some of these presentations include sensitive
information that needs to be guarded. Given all the variables, it may seem an
overwhelming task to deliver your content, on time, to all audiences, and to only
those who need to see it. Oh, and by the way, you need to make it interesting,
informative, and memorable. So, how do you do it? Without the help of a robust set
of tools, it would be nearly impossible. But, Microsoft® PowerPoint® provides you
with a variety of such tools that can help you deliver content in nearly any
situation, while saving time and effort. By taking advantage of these tools, you will
be creating presentations that not only stand out from the crowd, but also don’t
consume all of your available time.

This course is for individuals using PowerPoint 2016, 2013 or 2010 and is taught
using PowerPoint 2016 software. However, there are very few differences between
the 2016 and the 2013 and 2010 versions from an end-user’s perspective. Our
instructors have used all 3 versions and will be able to quickly highlight the several
small changes to the user interface. Users of any of the 3 versions of PowerPoint
will have no problem learning in the 2016 software environment.
