You will learn how to prepare great slides within this section.
You will understand how to practically make better slides using your software AND how to present them live with more engagement.
You will engage with some practical exercises here to deepen the learning
Exercise 1 to get you going and to test your new skills. Do the course first though, unless you're an advanced user. Look out for the zip file of 100 free photos (!) and links to other free photo websites.
Exercise 2 - Get good by practising here. Use an old* set of slides and refresh them in this exercise using Lee's techniques *or develop a new set of slides for a future talk.
Exercise 3... This is an example of a dull/boring/complex slide deck using a standard Powerpoint template often used, make them better now using the new techniques you've learnt. We have exaggerated mistakes for comedy effect! Keep the old slides to show your colleagues a before and after as proof! We have used 5 simple opinions/quotes to keep it easier. Imagine you have ten mins to present, what would you drop? Simplicity is key. Think photos, think big, what would you change? Add stuff, remove stuff, change stuff! Give it a go! ONLY when you have finished the course though! See what Lee did with that info in only a few minutes using HaikuDeck app on his iPad: http://www.slideshare.net/leejacksonuk/5-mistakes-dull-speakers-make
You will learn lots of extra content from our archives
Prezi is the new kid on the block for presentation visuals. "That's all very well but your research doesn't apply to me Lee, does it, because I use Prezi?!" is the question that Lee is asked more than any other. Lee answers that big question here.
Get a few tips here that will make a real difference to your slide design options.
Grid for your slide software i.e. using the rule of thirds. Use this grid as a backdrop to help you design like a designer then when you've finished delete it. See the "Think like a designer" video for more info. Note: depending on the software you use - you may be able to "show guides" or "show rulers" in the preferences to help you use a built-in grid.
Use the Powerpoint, Keynote, PDF or Jpegs (photo files) of this plain set of slides to help you think more simply, make them into a template on your software if you like too. Enjoy.
Learn how you can be successful with Lee's in-depth interview on Voice America Radio...
BONUS: Lee now produces and delivers a podcast called 'Get Good At Presenting' which is totally free and can be listened to wherever you get your podcast - all the links and episodes are here: https://leejackson.org/podcast

Don't do death by powerpoint ever again. Learn how to engage an audience for maximum impact - don't just use Powerpoint / Keynote, use it to make you shine.

World Class Powerpoint: Learn how to make TED quality slides by Lee Jackson is a series of over 35 short (and often funny) videos (plus loads and loads of extras) from Lee Jackson one of the world's experts on creating presentation slides that help, not hinder, your talks. Lee takes the research and content of his Amazon best-selling book 'Powerpoint Surgery' (hence the surgeon's outfit) and has turned it into an online masterclass for anyone who wants to make their slides more effective and their talks more engaging.

Any presentation software is relevant here, not just Powerpoint. If you or your workplace is addicted to bullet points and talks sometimes lack impact or engagement, then this course is for you and your colleagues. Simple, effective advice on simplifying your slides to help you look more like an accomplished professional TED speaker, not a grey business person delivering a financial proposal of 567 bullet points to an audience wanting it to end.

There are lots of great videos with some screen shares to show you how to make your Microsoft Powerpoint, Apple Keynote, Prezi, or Haiku Deck slides more impactful to create a much better presentation.

Plus, the free extras include 100 free photos, articles, links, and downloads.

Lee is an award-winning full-time professional speaker with over 25 years of experience speaking to some of the world's toughest audiences, he has also delivered a TEDx talk. So, learn from a Pro, not a trainer who's read a manual - Lee's experience and expertise here makes all the difference. Practical, down-to-earth, and sometimes even funny is the style of this course.

'Death-by-powerpoint' would become a thing of the past if every presenter took this course.

Extras include hours of audio, articles, links, and downloads, including the whole course on MP3.

Don't forget - any presentation software is relevant here, not just Powerpoint.

Learn how to engage an audience for maximum impact - don't just use Powerpoint, use it to make you shine.

Who should take this course?

  • As long as you are prepared to learn and be challenged this is the Presentation Skills course for you.
  • This course is for anyone who speaks upfront and uses presentation slides especially those who have traditionally used lots of bullet points but now want to stand out from the crowd.
  • Professional speakers, novice speakers and anyone who speaks as part of their job, including trainers and coaches.
  • This course is not for people who just want to learn how to make their slides more "wizzy" or "spinney" or "zoomy-inni". Seriously who wants that? Engagement is key.

Requirements

To get the best out of this course students will need access to Presentation Slide software like Microsoft Powerpoint, Apple Keynote, Haiku Deck, Slideshare, Microsoft Sway, Google Slides or any open-source slide software to learn how to be a great presenter.
