A SINGLE DAY OF TRAINING CREATED FOR NON-DESIGNERS TO GIVE YOUR POWERPOINT PRESENTATIONS AND CONTENT THE RIGHT VISUAL IMPACT.

Presentation Ninja

How to be a PowerPoint Presentation Ninja

All of us now see beautifully designed content on our smart phones several times a day - everyday. Our developed eye for design means we now distrust something when it is poorly designed. 

We disengage with content that makes us think or look too hard.

Just imagine the impact your content is having (or not) when shown on a large presentation screen. How often do you have to go through your PowerPoint document trying to ignore the busy slides, inconsistent formatting and poor alignment? Our training will enable you to apply basic design tips and tricks to help you work smarter, save time AND have a well formatted document.

 
 

We have created this single day of design and PowerPoint training to enable non-designers to:

  • Learn the tips and tricks in PowerPoint to save you time and frustration
  • Understand the psychology of design and why it is so important
  • Knowing your audience and how to match an emotional visual response
  • Get the desired output from nailing the brief the first time
  • Get to grips with colour including the psychology and palettes
  • Choosing the right fonts to enhance your message
  • Alignment tips and tricks to sharpen your layouts
  • Image searching, visual metaphors, icons and infographics
  • Layouts and visual hierarchy
  • Helpful tips, tricks and free online resources

Who should attend?
This training session has been created for anyone who is regularly putting together PowerPoint presentations and proposals but has no formal training or design skills. A basic knowledge of PowerPoint is helpful but not essential.

When and where?
Training is for up to 12 people and can be delivered on-site or externally. 

This is a practical, lively, ‘hands on’ session so participants will need to bring their laptops and have a recent version of Microsoft PowerPoint.

Don't just take our word for it...

"Definitely the tricks in PowerPoint made my life easier."
"Overall I am more aware of the way I shape each slide and I am more focused on getting the message across without using too much text."
"Still thinking in thirds, which has helped massively."
"Still inspired by the need to make our content beautiful and touchable. It cemented my beliefs about learning and marketing."
"I created an info-graphic for my next presentation which really helped to make my point much more easily."
"Now I always remember how to make the key points stand out."
