Creating Presentation Support Materials

Avoid the pitfalls of too many slides and too much text! Make sure you keep your audience engaged by using visual support materials effectively and create visuals that enhance your message.

Interacting on a one-to-one basis is greatly reduced when presenting to groups and is virtually non-existent when presenting to large audiences. Also, when a presentation is required to communicate large projects in a short space of time, presenters can find the prospect overwhelming and end up cramming in too many slides and too much text. This may be to try to orient the audience or expose them to as much information as possible all at once. This, of course, leads to a disengaged audience and a lack of retention. This course helps ensure that delegates are equipped with the skills needed to create and manage effective visual aids in making sure everyone is able to remain engaged and that they retain the information delivered. Effective visual aids further help contextualise extempore dialogue and also help the speaker stay on track of his or her presentation’s content.

Saving Valuable Time

Our customers are efficient modern organisations who want eLearning to be delivered as fast as possible with full comprehension by learners obtained and recorded. They know that saving even a small amount of time per module can result in major cost savings and that learner engagement is key to effective learning.

Accelerating eLearning

Our audience are adult learners with busy lives and a job to do. They don’t want to waste time and we know they will only sustain maximum attention for a limited period. Our pacey interesting and interactive modules engage and challenge learners, providing better retention and understanding, saving people time. We don’t waffle. We do apply the ‘so what?’ test to ensure that everything said or written supports the course outcomes and we use plain English. Our courses use accelerated learning techniques to provide rapid comprehension. This includes allowing learners to experiment with a situation and see the results; using synchronised audio, text, graphics, animation, photographs and games to engage both left and right brain in the process. The learner is presented with a wide variety of interaction types and can use the eBooks for checklists and on the spot access.

  • Step 2 – Engage the learner throughout the course
