PowerPoint is a powerful tool that was developed to help anyone create amazing presentations, no matter what their technical ability.

But too many people use PowerPoint the wrong way.

What is the wrong way?

Well, I’d say it was any way that makes your audience wish they weren’t watching your presentation. Or worse, puts them to sleep.

I am sure you have you seen PowerPoint presentations like that.

What made them boring?

Too much text?

Endless bullets?

Maybe the presenter just read the slides?

But PowerPoint presentations don’t need to be boring, and that is why I decided to create this course.
