Whether you’re pitching to investors, delivering a keynote, or introducing a new product, text-heavy slides aren’t the way to make people listen. In this hands-on workshop, we’ll unpack how to outline, build, and deliver an innovative, attention-getting presentation.

In the first session, we’ll walk you through how to build a presentation and expose you to Prezi, a Powerpoint and Keynote alternative focused on immersive visual content. In the final class, you’ll deliver your presentation live and get on-the-spot feedback for improvement. Students will leave the class with the skills needed to build a concise, meaningful 10-minute presentation and the confidence to deliver it successfully.
