Microsoft PowerPoint (Level 2)


Course Overview

Meetings, instructions, training and pitches; these are part of our daily lives. We are often called upon to deliver presentations with little notice, at multiple venues and with varying requirements that include sensitive information that needs to be guarded. Given all the variables, it may seem an overwhelming task to deliver your content on time, to all audiences and to only those who need to see it. Oh and by the way, you need to make it interesting, informative and memorable. So how do you do it?  Without the help of a robust set of tools it would be nearly impossible.  PowerPoint 2013 provides you with a variety of tools that can help you deliver content in nearly any situation while saving time and effort.

By taking advantage of these tools you will be creating presentations that not only stand out from the crowd, but also don’t consume all of your available time.
