Part Two: Redesigning Presentations

About this Event

Do you struggle with how to make your slides visual?

Have you wondered what makes visuals effective, and how to make your slides stand out from the competition? Do you want to make slides that easily convey information or are easy to remember?

Learn what graphs are easiest for people to comprehend, and how to use this to your advantage. Practice putting your design skills to the test with breakout exercises and learn some insider tips to make your presentation shine.

This webinar is designed so that anyone can walk away understanding how to apply basic visual communication guidelines to their next presentation. Participants will receive tips, tricks, and tools for their next presentation. Redesigning Presentations builds on the material discussed in Rethinking Presentations. While we encourage you to attend Rethinking before Redesigning, you do not need to attend one to understand the other.

You will:

• Learn how the visual language is like any other language

• Discover the basic rules of grammar and syntax in visual language

• Apply visual rules to sample slides to make them more memorable

• Learn how to direct your audience’s eyes to enhance learning instead of distracting

This is the second of a two-part series on reworking your presentations and how you think about them. Both workshops are great to attend together, but it is certainly not required. Attend just Part One, just Part Two, or both if your schedule allows!

We will be using Zoom, which allows us to have breakout rooms. You will receive the Zoom link after you sign up for this course. If you have never used Zoom before, you can download it here:
