Microsoft PowerPoint Introductory

Presentations are a common requirement for most professional roles.

This Microsoft Outlook PowerPoint course is a private programme designed to support your staff's presentation skills by helping them develop proficiency in the basic features of the Microsoft PowerPoint software. Run on-site or off-site over the course of one day, the programme takes a 100% hands-on approach to equip your delegates with skills in putting together an effective PowerPoint presentation from scratch. Key topics covered include:

  • Formatting texts
  • Importing and working with graphics
  • Using the PowerPoint drawing tools
  • Modifying presentations
  • Delivering live PowerPoint presentations

The practical focus, combined with the personal attention received from the course tutor, will help every participant develop confidence in using the tools & features covered. By the end of the training, they will thus have all of the tools needed to deliver presentations that are well-made and pleasing to the eye. Though the standard course has a set outline, organisations can choose to further customise the content in order to meet a specific need.

Insight IT Training can arrange for the training to cover any version of the Microsoft PowerPoint software.

Suitability - Who should attend?

This course is suitable for first time and recent users of Microsoft PowerPoint who would like to develop their confidence in using the software's basic features.
