What you’ll learn in our advanced PowerPoint training course

Tool navigation, application, & productivity hacks – Right from the very beginning we’ll be taking you through how to navigate PowerPoint more efficiently and effectively using crafty shortcuts and lesser-known tricks. Increasing the speed of your workflow and confidence within PowerPoint.

Visualisation – Why it works, how it works, and how you can harness the power of visual mind-control to turn tiresome data and uninspiring walls of text into engaging visuals and compelling stories.

Layout and design – We combine theory with easy-to-remember tips enabling you to create well-designed layouts that assist the audience in information assimilation. No design degree required.

Advanced tools – A deep-dive into the underside of PowerPoint, exploring the hidden tools that will help you wrest control over all things visual and give you the ability to develop your own unique elements and iconography.

Showing data effectively – Creating, editing, animating, and presenting both live and non-live charts, graphs & infographics in a way that will help your audience to understand and retain the information.

Animation – We’ll show you how to increase audience attention and eliminate distractions with compelling and well thought out use of animation. From the basics of identifying types of animation, through to advanced multi-stacking, we’ll even show you how to make best use of transition effects such as the powerful new Morph tool.

Advanced image manipulation – How to manipulate images and photographs without the need for specialist graphics software.

Interactivity, automation and media – We will cover how to create navigable menus, interactive elements, and self-running presentations in this section. On top of that we’ll show you how to import, edit, export, and make best use of media within the framework of PowerPoint itself.

Templates and masters – Setting backgrounds and templates to streamline the production of visually consistent presentations without any audience-distracting inconsistencies.

Anything else? – Like to know how to reduce your file size? How to export your presentation as a self-running movie? Would you like us to have a go at redesigning that troublesome slide in-person? Good news, this course has been designed with maximum flexibility in mind, if there’s any advanced PowerPoint functionality you’d like us to focus on in more detail please don’t hesitate to let us know.

Our Process

01 | Assess PowerPoint training needs

Our advanced PowerPoint training is modular. We discuss your needs, and agree which PowerPoint training modules to include. We can create bespoke training including storytelling or presentation skills alongside PowerPoint training too.

02 | Set logistics

We can come to you for face-to-face training, or if you prefer, we can run a series of online PowerPoint training sessions for your far-flung teams. Before your training, we make sure we are clear on who is attending and their needs.

03 | Create bespoke PowerPoint toolkit

Part-toolkit, part-reference guide, part-workbook all in the form of a PowerPoint deck which builds alongside your skills and follows your design guidelines. This means that throughout the course you will be designing slides within your brand.

04 | Run advanced PowerPoint training

One of our experienced trainers runs your PowerPoint training. Our trainers work as presentation designers with some of the world's biggest brands, and know what works.

05 | Provide follow-up training online

To ensure the training is as effective as possible, we provide online refresher PowerPoint training a few weeks after your initial training.
