How do I become a PowerPoint Expert?
Become an expert in PowerPoint by establishing the information you wish to communicate, then
acquire the knowledge and build the skills to effectively display that information graphically in a concise and clear way.
How can I create better PowerPoint presentations?
Many people in countless industries and places use PowerPoint, but they don't always use it correctly or efficiently.
Presenters need to learn how to accurately use graphics to make their argument or get their point across, and they need
to learn how to tie visuals to text in meaningful ways. At New Horizons, we can help you to improve the quality of your presentations
so you effectively communicate whatever is important to you.
Why should I learn PowerPoint at new Horizons?
PowerPoint is used in schools and boardrooms, by students and researchers. It is used in museums and store kiosks, in churches and in military briefings. It is even used in courtrooms.
In 2017 the MIT Sloan School of Management conducted a study of incoming MBA students to find out how they communicate and what they wanted to learn.
Eighty-five percent of the respondents said that creating presentations is a crucial part of their jobs. They also said students ranked data visualization near
the top of skills upon which they’d like to improve. Writing and speaking are important, but visual communication — conveying ideas in pictures,
not merely words — is also essential.*
