When you write PowerPoint presentations, do you - Pretend it's a Word document in landscape?
- Stick objects on a page until the white space is filled up?
- Write a bunch of slides, then think about how they go together? It's easy to get the basics in PowerPoint but hard to write compelling stories that your audience will find memorable and meaningful. But don't let the insights you've discovered in hours of research and analysis get lost in a maze of mediocre slides. In this 90-minute primer you'll go from slide monkey to slide master. We'll take an accelerated 'learn-by-doing' approach: picking up where we left off in Use Excel Like a Pro. Fast., we'll design a PowerPoint template, write a storyboard and craft a polished presentation. Along the way, we'll unpack the principles of great slide writing and cover shortcuts that will save you hours.
