The Art of Storytelling with PowerPoint

Introduction

Imagine you are delivering a very important presentation using PowerPoint. The facts you are sharing is significant, but after a while you find your audience is busy checking their mobile devices or looking outside to take in the surrounding. You feel deflated, what went wrong?

If you had similar experience, you may take solace from the knowing that you are not alone in suffering such “Death by PowerPoint”. An estimated 350 PowerPoint slides are presented worldwide per second and most of these slides are cluttered with words and bullet points. After suffering endless hours of such torment inducing encyclopedic slideshows, long-suffering audience are retaliating with indifference.

To win the battle against audience indifference, you need to figure out a way to weave facts into a meaningful story. At their heart, all presentations are stories. As an enhancer or a barrier, it’s the visual storytelling elements that separate a well-crafted PowerPoint presentation from the rest. Our brains are wired to learn from and remember stories. Presentations that effectively make use of storytelling techniques are easier to understand and remember. Whether for yourself or for your business, this course will teach you the basics and beyond of how to tell outstanding stories with PowerPoint presentations.
