Why book this course?

We all know the perils of a bad PowerPoint presentation. Endless rolls of text, bad design and shoddy graphics can undermine even a well-spoken presentation, and be as much of a hindrance as a help. Using a bad PowerPoint at a meeting can prevent people from absorbing the information fully, and even distract them from what you’re saying.

Our Introduction to Microsoft PowerPoint course aims to do away with dodgy PowerPoints, and empower you to give great presentations. Starting with an introduction to the software, our trainers will guide you through the use of text, graphics and animations, helping you to produce an effective and professional slideshow.

Who is the course for?

Our Microsoft PowerPoint Beginner course is ideal for anyone who needs to produce presentations, and feels that they could benefit from a better appreciation of the software. This could include everyone from administrators, to secretaries and PAs, to sales and management staff. 

While delegates should have some basic computer and keyboard skills, no previous knowledge of Microsoft PowerPoint is required. While familiarity with a word processor (e.g. Microsoft Word) is advantageous, it is also not essential.

What content will the course cover?

  • Introducing the Backstage view, Groups and the Ribbon

  • Using Live Preview

What will I get out of the training?

Delegates will gain confidence with Microsoft PowerPoint, and learn the essential skills they need to create, edit and print professional slideshows. You’ll learn how to use a range of design features, create a neat and compelling layout, and how to deliver an effective and professional presentation.
