Event description

Description

Being able to make a good presentation is crucial whether you're a startup pitching to investors, a student presenting for a group project, or an employee trying to sell to clients or a manager.

But the design of the presentation, i.e. how to design the slides and structure of your keynote to be more engaging, persuasive and memorable, and ultimately tell a story that people want to listen to, rarely gets much attention.

That's why in this workshop, we'll cover:

  • How to Structure a Presentation
    Different situations call for different types of presentations. We’ll go through the structure you should adopt for the two most common types - information dense business presentations and creative story-led presentations

  • How to Design Good Slides
    Your ability to convince, engage and have people remember what you’re saying can be influenced by how well you design your slides. So in addition to the basic design principles, we’ll also talk about techniques which are particularly relevant for presentations such as the use of grids, transitions and animation.

  • How to Design at Speed
    If you are designing a presentation, chances are you have little time to put everything together. I’ll show you how you can design quickly and efficiently so even if you only have a few hours to improve an existing presentation or a couple of days to create a new one, you’ll still be able to manage!

All you need to bring is a laptop with Microsoft PowerPoint installed (Microsoft Office 2007 or later), and maybe some friends or colleagues who could do with better design skills :)

Keynote is fine too (and my personal favourite), but I’ll be basing the tips on PowerPoint to be as inclusive as possible.

No previous design experience required. However, if you have used PowerPoint/Keynote before, it will be a benefit (obviously).

Hope to see you there!
