Communicate With Slides
Think back to the last slide presentation you witnessed. Perhaps the presenter read directly off the slides. Maybe the slides had too much information or a cluttered design. Or worse, did technical difficulties cause the entire talk or meeting to go awry?
Whether you’re speaking at conferences, leading team meetings, or pitching to a potential client, slide presentations are an essential tool to communicate important information to your audience. But delivering a slide presentation effectively – one that engages rather than distracts and motivates rather than bores – requires more than just a few pictures and graphs.
We developed Communicate With Slides to help you harness the power of expert communication techniques AND effective slide presentation skills to deliver more confident, compelling, and memorable presentations, no matter the setting.
During Communicate With Slides, you will learn proven verbal and non-verbal communication techniques that strengthen relationships with customers, encourage a collaborative team environment, increase efficiency, and expand your influence. You’ll also discover how to craft more effective presentations through slide deck storyboarding, visual tricks, audience engagement, and storytelling. This interactive training includes the development of slides and decks with whichever presentation tool you prefer (Microsoft PowerPoint, Adobe Presenter, Google Slides, or other presentation software).
Here’s a quick look at what you will learn with help from our world-class Coaches:
