Transforming Presentation Slides

In this era of infinite content, cutting through clutter to provide a clear and engaging message sets you apart. However, the majority of slides in technical presentations fail to focus and engage the audience. Instead, the barrage of words and bullet points act as a barrier to the audience’s understanding and don’t support the presenter’s main point. In this dynamic 3-hour course, workshop participants will walk away with better strategies for creating presentation slides. These strategies, backed by extensive cognitive science research, will transform how technical presenters think about their work and the messages they have to share.


Participants will:

  • Engage the audience: create a strong opening title slide to hook them right from the start
  • Establish your credibility: apply visual strategies to effectively introduce yourself and your content
  • Transform your slides: explore the problem with traditional PowerPoints, and lend clarity to technical information with assertion-evidence slide design
  • Identify the noise: create meaningful visual companions to important data, and learn which data and content to omit
  • Emphasize your message: develop an ending slide that leaves your audience with a clear message and call-to-action
