Dynamic PowerPoint Design: Easier Than You Think
In this brief session, full-time presentation designer Brian Rooney will review simple steps that anyone can do to make their next PowerPoint far more effective and compelling using visual design, narrative and plain old common sense. Covered will be the same techniques that the Fortune 500 uses to make their presentations compelling. With billions in market share on the line, these elite companies won’t risk visual communication that falls flat. Neither should you. Your next presentation can look as good as one from America’s best companies.
Brian Rooney is a lifelong visual communicator. After honing his skills in graphic design, photography, marketing and writing, he decided to combine them all together into advanced presentation design. Outside of decades of volunteer service to national and state parks, he considers it his mission in life to help others create PowerPoints that don't stink by incorporating the best practices of Fortune 500 presentation design. A good presentation can be as compelling as a great documentary and truly motivate action, but it takes proper planning and execution and that's what he's here to share with us today
