The ability to effectively guide an audience on an interactive journey through a presentation can catapult the professional profile of those who want to advance in the competitive workforce.

This course is a practical quick start guide to teach you how to bring your presentations to life using Animations. Animations allow you to control the flow of presenting information so you can be authentically engaging and audience centered.

I reveal how to enliven your presentations by using Animations to wake up sleepy, unimaginative, bullet-point-text content that has become the norm. To start, I teach you how to give movement and pizzaz to presentation content by sharing the fundamentals of Animations. Next, I share the purpose and power of using Animations to help you stand out with facilitation poise and your presentation unfold with impeccable timing. Then, I walk you through common workplace examples, actually using real Animations, to help you see and imagine how your next presentation can engender welcomed interaction from your audience, elevate your organizational profile, and highlight your professional value.

You will discover how to get started using Animations. These key fundamentals will lay the foundation to get you started on the right foot. From there, you will identify practical uses and examples to optimize the use of Animations. This fortifies your ability to bring visual life to your content and customize your delivery to captivate your audience. Finally, we explore lessons learned and ways to avoid common mishaps to fast-track your success using Animations.

This course is the second in a series of three designed to provide the practical skills and knowledge for the effective presentation and delivery of information. Each course shares invaluable insight, “how to” instructions, and real workplace examples to illuminate concepts. This condensed but material-packed class enriches your knowledge and ability to create and deliver high-quality presentations while sharpening your competitive advantage.
