PowerPoint is probably the most used software for creating presentations but most users only know the basics. This one day course will train you how to create a more impressive presentation using some of the more advanced features of PowerPoint, in particular, transitions, custom animations, using tables, backgrounds, video and sound.
You are welcome to bring along a PowerPoint presentation you are working on. You can also bring along your laptop if you want to learn on your own machine, although PC's will be provided.
The course is usually based on PowerPoint 2016/2019/365, but we can cater for delegates wanting training in PowerPoint 2013 and PowerPoint 2010.
