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.

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.
