Description:  This workshop works best following the PowerPoint Basics workshop.  The focus of this session is not the mechanics of creating a PowerPoint Presentation, but actually presenting what you create in the PowerPoint Basics workshop.  How many bullets should be on a slide and how many fonts should be in a presentation in order to effectively convey your message?  Where should I stand when presenting and how can I combat "stage fright"?   The answers to these and other Presentation related questions will be covered in this session. 


 As a result of participating, individuals will be able to:

  • Identify the PowerPoint Screen used for printing handouts and speaker notes
  • Identify the elements of a PowerPoint Presentation created to enhance a message
  • Identify the elements of a PowerPoint Presentation that will distract from the message
