Throughout this curriculum, you will discover the best practices for visually displaying messages, including editing down to one idea per slide, avoiding visual clichés, arranging slide elements for clear communication, and turning words into diagrams in order to create more memorable and persuasive presentations, along with stronger calls-to-action.


Presenting focuses on presentation delivery and impact. You will practice techniques for preparing your presentations including best practices for remote presenting and managing social media as well as a post-presentation action plan.
