Preparing and Delivering PowerPoint Presentations is an intensive three-day workshop on how to prepare and deliver excellent business presentations that use PowerPoint slides as a primary visual aid.

This workshop will help participants prepare presentations by:
      ·Enhancing PowerPoint slide preparation with powerful, proven communication planning techniques

      ·Coordinating the three information systems of presentations -- spoken words, nonverbal communication,                         and visual displays -- to deliver presentations that are self-reinforcing and coherent.
      ·Using specific verbal "recipes" and nonverbal techniques that complement PowerPoint slides and gather                         words, gestures, and slides into one clear message.
