Presentation Design Truths Revealed! (New Content)
Be Empowered to Design Presentation Slides That
Captivate the Hearts and Minds of Your Audience
Have you ever wondered why your audience only looks half-interested when they are attending your talks? Or have you asked yourself what kind of presentation slides can really draw the attention of your audience?
Based on a recent survey, it is estimated that there are over 300 million PowerPoint users globally, with up to 30 million slides being generated daily. Unfortunately, most of the slides created and presented will simply send the audience to sleep, especially in a world with access to a constant stream of entertainment.
So ask yourself, will your next presentation be a success or an excuse for your audience to get a catnap or catch up with their latest YouTube channel?
Hi! My name is Kelvin Lee, and for the past 10 years I have trained more than a thousand executives just like you to design great presentation slides that can persuade and motivate their audience. I know how it feels when your audience seems uninterested and unresponsive because I have been there before. The feeling you get can sometimes be depressing and discouraging. In the worst-case scenario, it may cost you the much-needed sale or even your job.

The Five Things That Really Annoy Your Audience
We'll start with getting into the minds of your audience. Just like a guy who needs to know and avoid anything that irritates the girl he is pursuing, we must also understand and eliminate the things that annoy our audience in order to win them over. In this segment, we look at what goes on in the minds of your audience when they are looking at your presentation slides, and identify the top five annoyances that you should never commit. This will be the foundation of how we design our slides.
Using The Right Tools For The Job
To build a strong and beautiful house, a builder needs the right tools. In this segment, we look at the tools used by graphic designers that will help you design your presentation slides with greater clarity and effectiveness. You will also discover numerous little-known features in PowerPoint that will help you design your slides in double-quick time. And to make it even more exciting for you, we’ll be equipping you with the skills to create two types of graphics that are widely used today; pictograms and silhouettes. They are used everywhere; in adverts, videos and even in your phones. They are must-have graphic elements for your slides.
Unifying The Look And Feel Across Slides
Slides with diverse and conflicting visual elements can cause mental stress and discomfort to your audience, resulting in them switching off and losing the train of thought of your presentation. In this segment, we will equip you with effective and simple visual techniques to pull together key points that are seemingly unrelated and allow the audience to stay on track with you throughout your presentation.
Exploiting the Power of Animation
Users of PowerPoint often have a difficult relationship with animation. Many use it so intensively that the audience will feel like they are in a digital circus show, while others avoid it like the plague. The truth is, when used appropriately with taste and creativity, animation has the power to multiply the impact of your presentation. Through this segment, we'll unravel how animation is one of the key tools in making your presentation stand out from the crowd.
Making Your Numbers Count
Based on a yearly survey on actual presentation slides created, one of the most annoying things cited is that slides are loaded with tonnes and tonnes of mind-numbing numbers and figures. Sadly, many presenters perpetuate this mistake to overload their audience with an endless dump of numerical data. In this segment of the workshop, you will learn how to present your numbers with greater impact and effectiveness, reducing the visual and mental burden on your audience.
Learning From The Best
Modelling the best techniques of experts has been proven to be an effective way to achieve fast results in any field. In this segment, we look at five excellent examples of presentation slides by expert designers that have captivated their audience. We will break down the slides into their different components to analyse what makes them so effective, and you will learn to apply the same techniques to your own slides.
Creating An Endless Supply Of Presentation Resources
Google may be the king of the internet, but when we are hard pressed for time to design creative presentation slides, Google often falls short of giving much help. In this final segment, you will be equipped with the right tools to create your own library of resources. And when you need ideas urgently, it will be available to you with just a few clicks of the button.
