Does the quality of your slides undermine the quality of your thinking? Do you find that endless bullet points don’t land your message, but you’re not sure what to do instead? And do you find it frustrating and time-consuming working with PowerPoint?

We can teach you how to create slides that look better and have more impact – and how to be faster at building great content. Our training framework has three key objectives:

An eye with a brain where the pupil would be

Why visual communications works

A finger with a ribbon tied around it, as if to remember something

Four habits
to increase impact

Using PowerPoint
more effectively

The training is aimed at professionals who frequently use slide decks as documents to convey important, detailed subjects. Documents which may be read independently, so which need to be clear and memorable for your stakeholders.

Our courses are designed for people who already know how to use PowerPoint, but want to learn to use it more effectively. If you are looking for 1:1 tailored training, check out our Coaching offer.

Steve delivered several sessions focused on improving visual communication of information for our staff, centered around knowledge and skills associated with PowerPoint. His sessions were incredibly well-designed and delivered. Content was tailored specifically to our audience, visually impactful, memorable, and received excellent feedback from attendees.
Overall, I was most impressed with his ability to adapt and tailor his session to our brief, his talent with presenting and working with the audience, and how considered his course design was to support our learners within and following the session.
I would highly recommend Steve to any firm looking to support their employees in making their presentations more effective and engaging.

Steve is a great trainer and facilitated workshops for our London and India teams on visual communications, which were very well-received. The workshops were very generous in their offering. It gave participants an overview of design and visual optimisation and an enhanced understanding of how information is perceived, as well as a hands-on section on the tricks and tools in PowerPoint to help make slides more impactful.
I would definitely recommend it.
