PowerPoint 2003 Advanced

About the course

The way a business communicates with customers, employees and other organisations can have a huge influence on its success and productivity.

The famous psychologist Albert Mehrabian demonstrated that the way people take in information during a presentation is 55% visually, 38% vocally and only 7% through text. Put simply, a strong visual presentation will make your audience remember you - and your message.

PowerPoint is used to create eye-catching slide shows, overhead transparencies, printed handouts and speaker notes. This course shows employees how to use PowerPoint to prepare effective presentations so that they can get their message across clearly - saving time and improving business performance.
