“Simplicity boils down to two steps: Identify the essential. Eliminate the rest”– Leo Babauta
How many presentations have you sat through bored and uninspired?
What are the common mistakes people make when creating presentations?
In this popular 4-part series we look at the art of structuring and designing a compelling presentation using PowerPoint or Apple Keynote. In parts 1 & 2 you’ll learn simple design rules to make your slides visually impactful and importantly get your message across. We’ll look at good and bad examples so you are clear on what is effective and why. You’ll get a structure to help build your story which you can apply immediately to keep your audience engaged. We then apply what we’ve learned and practise together with plenty of time for questions.
In parts 3 & 4 we focus on data and infographics. Should you use a line graph, pie chart or bar graph? How do you present data in a visually compelling way? Super clean table design so the data is clutter free. Bold & clear graphs helping to bring clarity to complex information. Fun ways to use infographics to keep it simple and importantly memorable for your audience.
These 4 sessions are one of our most popular courses. In many of the organisations we work with we are seen to be creating a culture change in the way people present and what it means to design slides that are visually stunning, more inclusive and much easier to deliver.

The thoughts in your mind give us happiness
Lots to put into practice here to avoid death by PowerPoint: 3 second rule, font guide, displaying data clearly, lots covered! Eager to complete part 2 next week.
So well structured and delivered. Lots of great tips and ideas on how to make your presentation more impactful. Dean is a very skilled and professional trainer with amazing insight and knowledge! Really enjoyed this session.
I had thought I knew most of the ‘golden rules’ of PowerPoint. But I picked up some really useful hints and tips. Always enjoy Dean Kaden’s courses – Thank you.
