Course Description

This is Scott author and trainer on several books and courses on Microsoft Office products.

But even more importantly, I've actively used PowerPoint in real-world situations for many years.

With each new version of PowerPoint, I've not only learned what is new for myself and my own benefit, I've built my skills to help teach others and to train many of my colleagues.

In this course, you'll get the benefit of that experience in addition to learning the basics for how to use PowerPoint. You'll gain some tips and tricks and learn to avoid common pitfalls people encounter when they're using this program.

We’ll be creating robust documents from scratch using real-world examples from my experience in the business world, but don’t let that stop you.

The methods learned in this training can be applied anywhere:
· Business
· School
· Webinars
· Home Business
You name it.

Learning a New program can seem daunting at first.

But by using my unique “look over my shoulder” training method, we’ll work together as if you are sitting right next to me looking over my shoulder. Instead of just going through the interface, tab by tab, learning individual functions we will build a complete presentation from scratch using the features of PowerPoint to complete the task.

Each part of project builds upon what we’ve already covered so by the time you complete this course You will learn to think in terms of problem-solving rather than just knowing about each feature

You will quickly discover how to make PowerPoint work the way you like to work.

Let's take a glimpse of what I'll be covering in this course.
For starters, we'll create a presentation from scratch, adding slides, bullets, and photos to help convey your idea.
I'll show you how to use and customize the built-in themes and templates, and photo effects to create professional-looking presentations with very little effort.

Then we'll cover animating your slides and providing transitions between them that will add a touch of class to your presentation.

We’ll cover rehearsing and timing your presentation and I’ll give you tips on how to present.

Armed with your laptop and a mouse, you can become a dynamic speaker with PowerPoint, illustrating your ideas on a screen.

The ideal student for this course is either a complete beginner or someone who uses PowerPoint regularly but doesn’t really use too many of the features, maybe creating new slides and typing out the presentation, (maybe changing fonts, bullet points, saving and printing) but doesn’t really know how to customize all the features in PowerPoint to get that professional looking presentation, regardless of whether you’re presenting in the class room or the board room.

This course is also ideal for someone who uses an older version of PowerPoint and wants to see the new features in action.
Or to help on the interview or add a little extra job security.

So, feel free to look through the course description. I look forward to seeing you inside!

For my entire professional career I've used Excel. Since the 90's I've been the Excel "go-to" guy in every company I've worked. Senior management has always relied on me to complete complex tasks involving massive amounts of data. They also sent me to numerous live Excel training courses over the years, from the basics to advanced classes. The problem I always had with this type of training was that I never felt like I learned what I needed to learn. I'd go with a list of questions about how to actually solve real problems from work and the majority of the class centered on very generic training. Not too many real world examples. So after recently sending some staff to a class with an outside training company we realized that we weren't getting the benefit we had hoped for, the staff came back with some knowledge but not that real world experience that I needed them to have. Since I was always the "Go To" guy for Excel questions the senior management team approached me about putting together an in house training program. So I spend a lot of time creating the most useful training programs I could devise. What makes this training the absolute BEST training that you can buy? Besides using real world examples, I've found the absolute best way for me to train someone is to have them sit right next to me while I show them how I perform the work that needs to get done. So I devised a training program that uses real world examples solved as if you're sitting right next to me. I have found that this is the absolute best way for you to see how real world work is done! So when asked to become an instructor on Udemy I jumped at the chance. I love teaching and sharing my knowledge, I think it's awesome seeing someone go from an absolute beginner to a very confident master.
