Transforming Presentations:

Double The Impact of Your

PowerPoint Presentations

Do you feel you are a pro at preparing and delivering PowerPoint presentations? Perhaps not one yet, but confident that you are good enough to handle a sizable audience. After all, you know all the basics, plus maybe a trick or two up your sleeves.

But consider this. Are your PowerPoint presentations no different from the estimated 30 million presentations given each day around the world? You ask, “So what’s wrong with that?” What you may not know is that most of these presentations have failed to live up to their full potential to captivate and motivate the audience. Because the PowerPoint software is relatively easy to use, many have fallen into the pitfall of misusing it as a “data-dump” which causes audience to switch off and nod off.

Now, Fig Tree Multimedia is going to turn you into a pro by bringing you a power-packed 2-day training that takes you beyond the common use of PowerPoint and present with style.
