We’re bringing our training to your desk in the form of two webinars next month.  If you’ve never attended a webinar, it’s more painless than parking downton: log on, call in, participate, log off, go back to work.  Heck, you can attend in your robe in your living room.


Effective Presentations: Stories and Stats

Tuesday, May 12 and Tuesday May 19 • 10–11 a.m.

There are few things more horrible than losing your audience. Two things can contribute to wandering attention: narrative that lacks a human touch, and visuals that fight with your narrative. Present information in a way that keeps your audience awake and engaged. Learn how to make PowerPoint slides that looks good while perfectly enhancing and complementing your talk. We help you structure your content for maximum interest and show you all the great features PowerPoint has to offer.
