The aim of this two-part workshop is to build confidence and be able to produce amazing looking but, crucially, effective presentations in a variety of styles depending on how important the presentation is and how much time you have.

Everything in this hands-on training is based on the research into multimedia communication and how to get your key messages to stay in the minds of your audience: how to make your message stick. No gimmicks, just achievable ideas and techniques which work.

We’ll cover the golden rules of creating presentations, finding amazing images without breaking copyright laws or spending any money, and creating PowerPoint Presentations in different styles. We’ll also look at interactive quizzing tools such as Menti: when and when not to use them, and how to use them most effectively.
