MS PowerPoint Training 

MS PowerPoint is widely used to create presentations, ranging from a small team meeting to an auditorium or virtual auditorium with hundreds of delegates.


Although there are other alternatives to PowerPoint, the majority of businesses use it as it forms part of the standard MS Office packages.

To create professional presentations that really support your message, it's essential to understand the key principals of the software.

We believe there are three different PowerPoint users.  These are;


  • the person who creates the presentation on behalf of someone else

  • the person who presents the presentation

  • the person who does both


Depending on which role you have, the knowledge and skill you need will differ.  For those that are creating on behalf of someone else, it is definitely still worth considering the presenter, when you put it together for them.
