Effective and impactful presentations are integral to your job success. We use presentations to sell an idea or a product, both internally and externally. How do yours stack up? We all know the kinds of presentations we like to see: those with less text, fewer bullet points, and more visuals. And yet time pressures and habit too often lead us to break the “golden rule of presentation” when we have to create our own slides. Join presentation expert and Microsoft PowerPoint MVP Nolan Haims for a 1-hour special PresentationXpert webinar on creating better presentations through more efficient use of PowerPoint and by implementing time-tested techniques for eliminating the major causes of tiresome slide decks in the corporate world.
Nolan will show you how to:
• Work faster and more efficiently using the best unknown PowerPoint tricks & hacks
• Customize your Quick Access Toolbar to reflect your working style
• Reduce text with the “three-word challenge”
• Eliminate bullet points through “chunking”
• Avoid creating slides destined to be cut later through “bumper stickers”
• Easily create handouts by exploiting PowerPoint’s notes page design features
• Write effective headers
• Source and choose effective imagery

Managers, supervisors, graphic and PowerPoint professionals, administrative assistants, sales professionals, marketers – anyone who uses Microsoft PowerPoint and wants to save hours and save hours of productivity.
