This course is for you

PowerPoint. Love it or hate it, it’s a tool that has defined how business is communicated in modern times. It may be an icon that appears on everyone’s desktop, but how many of us truly know how to create with it? This course is designed to take you through some of the more obscure but design-focused tools built into PowerPoint. It’s a course aimed at business users looking to spruce up their next deck, graphic designers looking to bridge into business and anyone with elementary experience in PowerPoint.
