Course Description

How can we prepare awesome presentations in a short time?

Preparing a presentation can often cause serious headaches. It is a fact that we have difficulty in every pitch experience we want to impress the audience. How can colors, fonts, images or animations be adjusted better and faster? This course is designed for those who want to explore the most effective methods and quickly create impressive PowerPoint presentations.

I have compiled the experience I have gained from presentations for the education, business and entrepreneurship as a professional for more than 10 years. My presentations made me win awards in my work and competitions. Many startups that I mentored succeeded by making presentations to investors. With this course you will be able to prepare your own signature presentations. With your own colors, modern font and lean appearance, you'll start to impress the audience. You will discover the most effective methods of success. You will find all the tools and tricks necessary for an impressive presentation.

After finishing the course, you can complete your presentation in a short time with the “Draft” file that you can download with the course or create your dream template from scratch. (Draft file is an animation ready presentation template which has 15 unique slides)

What will you find in this course?

You will find manuals on crucial content in the downloadable content section. You can see which lectures have a manual in the introduction. These manuals are created to be a reference guide for you on critical issues. Instead of re-watching an entire lecture where you have an issue with, you'll quickly remember the subject by browsing through these manuals.

In addition, I have prepared 4 different practice files enable you to work on real data. It will be very easy to repeat the subject with those practice files.

As I knew the difficulty of following and trying to understand the content at the same time, I took care to speak as slowly as possible and to repeat the tools I used several times. The language of the training is English, by opening the subtitle, you can prevent possible misunderstandings from the beginning.

There are review lectures at the end of each chapter. We will try to reinforce all the topics we have discussed throughout the chapter with review lectures. We will also see how the tools are implemented on a real presentation through a case discussed for each review lecture.

You can also download the “Icon Set” file including more than 40 editable icons and see how to use the icons in your presentations in “Lecture # 13 Icons ”. The Icon Set file is constantly updated and the number of icons increases. Don't forget to follow the updates. In downloadable content of “Lecture # 6” you will find the “Find your color” file. With this file you will be able to get the most appropriate color template for your presentation theme in seconds.
