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.

Showing data effectively – Creating, editing, animating, and presenting 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 more advanced tricks like importing GIFs created with other software.

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 how to use interactivity for things like quizzes. On top of that we’ll show you how to import, edit, export, and make best use of media within the framework of Slides itself.

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

Good news, this course has been designed with maximum flexibility in mind, if there’s any advanced Google Slides functionality you’d like us to focus on in more detail please don’t hesitate to let us know.

Our Process

01 | Assess Google Slides training needs

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

Part-toolkit, part-reference guide, part-workbook all in the form of a Slides 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 Google Slides training

One of our experienced trainers runs your Google Slides training. Our trainers work as presentation designers - using Google Slides - with some of the world's very 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 Slides training a few weeks after your initial training.
