All too often technical presenters are instructed to “dumb down” their presentations so that their audiences will be able to understand what they are saying. The results of these presentations are more often than not even worse than if they hadn’t been downgraded: the presented material is now confusing to everyone and none of the important information “sticks” with the audience. What if there was a way to communicate complex technical information in a such a manner that the audience would be able to follow along with the presentation and long afterwards they would still be able to clearly recall the key points? Good news, that’s exactly what this session can provide you with.
Time is precious resource that none of us have enough of. Learning to create a presentation that not only communicates the important information, but which also does it in a way that achieves your goal of passing information on to others is a great way to make the best use of both your and your audience’s time. In this session you will learn how to use tools such as PowerPoint to enhance your message, not take away from it.
