Skill Shots – Purposeful PowerPoint

Purposeful PowerPoint

About the workshop


PowerPoint. What is it good for? The answer? Quite a lot, actually! Give young children a paint box and it is likely they’ll use every colour available in their artistic creations. From experience, a similar principle seems to apply when it comes to using PowerPoint slides within presentations. Just because you can apply a “Grow & Turn Entrance Animation” to a selection of text, doesn’t mean you should! We’ve designed a workshop you help you design meaningful presentations.
