PowerPoint 2016

Overview

Whether for briefing internal colleagues or pitching to clients, presenting is at the heart of business life. Successful presentations have the power to create excellent first impressions, communicate complex and important messages, and lay the foundations for fruitful business relationships and projects.

Microsoft PowerPoint is the number-one tool for creating impactful presentations. So we have ruthlessly stripped out all business non-essentials from our syllabus to produce an innovative, impactful and CPD UK certified online PowerPoint course that focuses strictly on business success.

By the end of the course - taught through a blend of text-based articles, practice exercises, video tutorials and multiple choice quizzes and tests - your staff will be able to produce a highly professional slideshow, communicate analyses using charts and graphs, and incorporate animations and transitions into their presentations.
