The ability to effectively create and share information in a high-quality presentation can be the difference-maker for professionals who want to distinguish themselves in today’s competitive workforce.

This course is a practical quick start guide to help you easily build professional quality presentation content that’s visually pleasing and easy to understand.

I reveal how to energize your work by using SmartArt to wake up sleepy, unimaginative, bullet-point-text presentations that have become the norm. To start, I teach you how to break the mold of “meh” presentations by sharing the fundamentals of using eye-catching SmartArt. Next, I reveal the presentation purpose and power of using SmartArt to make you and your work stand out. Then, I walk you through common workplace examples, actually using real SmartArt, to help you see and imagine how your next presentation can engage the interest of your audience, elevate your organizational profile, and highlight your professional value.

You will discover how to get started using SmartArt. These key fundamentals lay the groundwork to get you started on the right foot. From there, you will identify practical applications and real examples to optimize the use of SmartArt. This fortifies your ability to conceive and then craft information into visual content to garner audience attention and fortify your presentation delivery. Finally, we explore lessons learned and ways to avoid common mishaps to fast-track your success using SmartArt.

This course is the first 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.
