Common Powerpoint Mistakes and How To Fix Them
Most of us learned to use PowerPoint the same way we learned all the other Microsoft programs, by trial and error along with an occasional tip from a co-worker. More and more, we are depending on PowerPoint as our primary communication tool. It has become essential that we take our presentations beyond the slide after slide of bullet points and text. This workshop covers six common mistakes when using PowerPoint. For each mistake numerous examples are given regarding how to combat it. There are lots of examples and time for discussion. Please note – this is not a "how to" session but rather one sharing ideas and examples for creating better PowerPoint presentations.
When you leave this session you will have learned:
- How to stop using PowerPoint as a teleprompter
- How to keep your slides from being too overwhelming
- What to do when you need both a presentation and a document
- Ten ideas for avoiding more boring lists of bullet points
- How to include more variety in your slides
- How to make your slides, and your presentation, more memorable
- What you can add to your presentation content to make it more engaging
- How to make it easy for your audience to stay on track throughout the presentation
I was impressed with the significant improvement I saw in just one day with our group. All their comments about the program were very favorable. We look forward to working with you again in the future.
