The Complete Presenter™: Mastering PowerPoint & Visual Aids

This is a 1-day follow-up programme open only to graduates of the Dare To Speak™ Public Speaking Programme.

Course Objective

Graduates of Dare To Speak™ would have acquired the basic presentation skills. This programme takes the participants a step further, teaching them to effectively employ visual aids in their presentations. The currently most popular visual aid is PowerPoint slides, which is the main focus of this course. At the end of the programme, participants will be able to handle several types of visual aids, and also have a great PowerPoint presentation that they can use immediately.

Course Methodology

Same as for Dare To Speak™ with lots of hands-on practice. To make the best use of available class time, participants are requested to bring a prepared PowerPoint presentation. The presentation can be one that they deliver often or will deliver in the near future, and it will be improved on during the course. The number of participants is limited to 10.
