The Magic of PowerPoint

A presentation instead of a thousand words

There is too much information in the world, so people filter out the excess. To make sure no one filters you out, you must grab attention. Study the composition, find your style, and choose exact words. Don’t talk about your ideas. Show them.

30 April - 14 May
About the course
The Art of Presentation

It’s a fail

A presentation with too much text, small print, and complex wordings is simply unpleasant to look at.

Powerful slides

How do you know that the presentation looks cool? It must turn heads. People will photograph, download, and share it. Have you ever seen one like this? If not, create it yourself.

About the course

 

Visualization

Anyone can google pictures with those little white men. We’ll show you how to make your presentation stand out from the most boring ones. 

Text

If a slide looks like a Wikipedia page, something is clearly wrong with it. You will understand how to present information without unnecessary words.

Additional functions

Learn more to make your presentation look even better. Morphing, converting to video and online PowerPoint alternatives.
