Make the Most of Your Presentations With Powerpoint

Would you like to put together a simple but impressive presentation, for sales, management or work colleagues, in under an hour? Or is your aim to use data, sound, graphics and video to achieve maximum effect?

It may be hard to believe, but we can take your skills from complete beginner to advanced level in just two 1-day sessions. Yes: from stumbling through the interface to knowing how to create mutimedia-rich presentations that transform any message.

We have scheduled public (open) classes running at all our UK centres, or can run a private (closed) class for you at your offices, all at excellent prices. For existing Powerpoint users, we can create a bespoke course that combines the elements you want to address into a single session, reducing your outlay in time and money, at no extra charge.

So with this quality of training, and our well-renowned great prices, we believe that you'll not find a better solution in the market.

About Microsoft Powerpoint

An industry standard for creating effective presentations, Microsoft PowerPoint is one of the most popular presentation software packages available -- and certainly the most widely used. Not only does PowerPoint help you to present your ideas in a clear and concise manner, with a range of applications that are as wide as your imagination, but it also helps you to design and produce presentations that look professional, and enhance their delivery by fully engaging the audience with simple, effective images, animations and effects.

Most people, however, only use its basic features and don't know how much they can achieve with this software. Attending a training course in PowerPoint will help you to master all the relevant skills and gain improvements in both productivity and the quality of your presentations. Delegates at our PowerPoint training courses often come with a little self-taught knowledge, and leave surprised at just how much can be achieved with the package.

Are you fully utilising Powerpoint's features and ease of use?

About Microsoft PowerPoint

PowerPoint is predominantly a tool for business users to present data to audiences within commercial environments.  It allows presenters to reveal data using slides that can contain a range of different media, including text, images and videos. Animations can also be used to enliven the broadcast, which is typically transmitted through the use of a digital projector. The presentation can be set up to run manually or automatically.

Our Approach

Our courses all focus on interactivity, which maximises learning and therefore effectiveness back at work.  And with our highly competitive pricing structure, you will get the best return on your training budget.

More about training with Activia

With Activia, you can check your skill level (click here to view our Tools and Resources) which ensures you book on the correct course.   This facility is also invaluable when putting together training programmes or bespoke courses for numbers of delegates.

You can also build your own Microsoft Powerpoint course (click here to view our Tools and Resources) to suit your own or your company project requirements, incorporating the modules which cover the subjects you want to learn.
