Program Description:
While there are plenty of things that audiences can dislike about a presentation, their #1 pet peeve is when presenters read off slides. There’s simply no faster way to turn off an audience and get them eyeing the exits. In Powerful Visual Presentations, you will learn how to design engaging content and augment it with compelling stories and visuals, so that you bring any presentation to life – whether it’s in the boardroom, on stage, or anywhere else. Get ready to turn your presentations into must-attend events that will have people remembering fondly and talking positively for weeks, months, or maybe even years!


  • Become aware of common preparation mistakes that result in lackluster presentations and slides
  • Discover habits that support the development of powerful visual presentations
  • Learn and apply principles of effective slide design
