Covers PowerPoint technical tips plus presentation skills.
- [Voiceover] Hi, I'm David Diskin, and welcome. This course isn't just about using PowerPoint. We'll begin with five of my favorite quick tips to get you started with PowerPoint. Then we'll move on to slide design, where I'll cover consistency, color palettes, and adding charts. I'll show you more complex features such as animation, customizing the template to your unique brand, and working with audio. I'll talk about your projector and lap top's display settings, using speaker notes, setting up custom shows with hidden slides, and more. You'll get my advice on every aspect of delivering to a live audience from setting up, interacting with your guests, and ending your presentation.
We'll wrap up with a few extra bonus tips to help you be more efficient, so let's get started.
