How to Create Powerful Presenations

Quick stat: there are over 30 million PowerPoint presentations given every day. That means that PowerPoint is one of the most widely used business productivity tools on the planet. Unfortunately, it’s one of the most misused tools on the planet as well. That’s not to say that people are using it incorrectly, per se. The problem is – few people actually use PowerPoint well.

True, PowerPoint is designed to be incredibly flexible, intuitive and simple to use. But because it’s an open road for how you tell your story, there are almost too many possible directions to take – often ending up in a dead end. Or at least ending up causing death by PowerPoint.

But there’s good news, Microsoft has teamed up with Eyeful Presentations to create a four-part webinar series that will help to take your presentations to a whole new level of quality and impact.
