Writing for Results – PowerPoint

For all our complaints about PowerPoint, it continues to be an essential part of our business and professional lives. We have used PowerPoint for many years as a presentation resource and more companies are now using it for client “deliverables”. These include reports, proposals, business plans and research findings. This business writing program introduces techniques and tips to help you write PowerPoint slides that are easy to read, professional and memorable.

The course is full of activities enabling all participants to practice editing and re-writing PowerPoint slides. It can be delivered in various formats (virtual, face-to-face or “lunch and learn”). Facilitators deliver the course using MeetingSphere, a collaboration software platform. A hands-on approach ensures a highly interactive and engaging learning experience.

Note: The course content can be customized for different business groups or applications within an organization by inclusion of company PowerPoint samples.
