If you’re like most researchers, academics & evaluators you think presentations are boring because PowerPoint sucks.

PowerPoint is not the problem.

It’s time to start making slides that are clear, compelling and captivating…

…with the slide software you’re ALREADY USING.

Most people will claim you’re doomed to be boring if you use PPT or Keynote. The problem isn’t the software. The problem is you’re not using the software in an EFFECTIVE way (which I’ll show you how to do in this free training series).

Using slides in more visually engaging ways is the key.


Let’s take a peek inside what you’ll learn:

1. YOU DON’T NEED VISUALS ON EVERY SINGLE SLIDE.

Everyone talks about how important visuals are (including me). It’s true that visuals are as close to magic as you can get if you want to design a captivating slide deck.

But, you don’t actually need a visual on every single slide to be captivating. You don’t even need a visual on most slides.

In some cases, a bad visual is actually worse than well-designed text and other creative strategies. In the course, we’ll explain (and show you) that, sometimes, text really can be enough.

2. YOU’RE ALREADY WASTING TIME WHEN CREATING THOSE BORING SLIDES.

A lot of people think it takes more time to design compelling slides than boring ones. In some cases, that can be true.

But, in most cases, the techniques we train you on will replace your current bad habits.

Many are able to create more engaging and visual presentations in about the same amount of time it took them to create boring, ineffective ones.

With these tools & lessons, you’ll be able to choose which approach works for you based on how much time & resources you already have.

3. EFFECTIVE PRESENTING BENEFITS BOTH YOU & YOUR AUDIENCE

Win-wins are rare, amirite? But that’s exactly what effective presenting is. Engaging slides help your audience learn more easily. Period.

But, engaging slides also help you in a bunch of ways. You’ll be more confident in your speaking skills, cultivate a positive reputation, and have an easier time talking about your topic.

We need to emphasize that last point: presenting is easier when you have less text on your slides.


Plus, we’ll introduce you to a workflow checklist that will help you be more efficient with your presentation design, from start to finish.

We’ll cover more than all this, too, but I think you get the gist by now 😉 This is a free crash course that will help you design more compelling slides ASAP. fin.
