Get Seven Lessons on Making Your PowerPoint Presentations More Effective and
Practical Presentation Tips Delivered Every Two Weeks

Sign up now to receive your free PowerPoint Effectiveness e-course:

Lesson 1 - Where to start when creating a presentation. Effective presentations start with an outline that ensures the message is clear and compelling. I'll show you three steps to create an outline for your presentation.

Lesson 2 - How to reduce the single biggest complaint of audiences today: information overload. You will learn how to reduce the information in your presentation to only what the audience needs to hear.

Lesson 3 - Why you should plan your slides on paper before you create them in software. PowerPoint does not help you think about what each slide should look like. You will learn how to plan each slide before sitting down at the computer so you spend much less time in the software.

Lesson 4 - Designing slides so they are easy to see. How do you select colors and fonts that are easy for the audience to see? You will learn how to use tools I have created that give you objective answers based on research.

Lesson 5 - Best practices for graphs. When presenting numbers, a graph is usually much better than a table of numbers. I'll show you what to watch out for and how to clean up the default graphs in PowerPoint.

Lesson 6 - Using photos and images. One of the first visuals that presenters use is a photo. In this lesson you will learn where to find great photos that you can legally use and make them look good on your slides.

Lesson 7 - Delivery Tips. Once you have your slides prepared from your outline, you need to prepare to deliver your presentation. I'll give you insider tips that the pros use to deliver confidently and tell you about the best tool for presenting your PowerPoint presentation on an iPad.

Then, every two weeks, you and the other over 8,000 subscribers will receive another practical tip or technique you can use immediately to improve the effectiveness of your PowerPoint presentations.  To see the newsletter archives, scroll down this page for all previous issues

Here's what others say about the ideas I share in this newsletter:
"... you offer good value in this e-zine and you certainly have cemented yourself in my head as the expert...". - John Kuypers

"I find your newsletters very helpful. One of the few that actually provide useful information. And you don't have to wade through a dozen ads to find it. Thanks, and keep up the good work." - John K. Mackenzie,

"I always take time to read your e-zine for several reasons:
- It is short and sweet. Takes only a few minutes to read unless I venture off and check out the links!
- It is not "motherhood, pie-in-the-sky" stuff! It contains valid information which is usually applicable to something I do just about everyday in my business.
- The tone used in writing it is very friendly and convincing."John Evans
