Slide:ology®

Simplify complex concepts and communicate them with visually effective slides audiences can easily understand.

Overview
Ways to learn
Agenda
  • Think, speak, and work like a designer
  • Identify the characteristics of a great slide in your own or others’ presentations
  • Apply expert design theory when sketching your slide layouts
  • Use S.P.A.C.E.™ methodology to overcome common slide design challenges

Most of us aren’t designers, yet we create presentations all the time. When we design slides, we can fall into classic traps—from overusing bullet points and cramming multiple ideas on one slide to using lots of colors, shapes, and fonts. When presenting to an audience, these slides often fail to convey what we most need the audience to know.

We blame PowerPoint® when we wind up with cluttered unattractive slides, but presentation software is just a vehicle for our communication. We forget that it’s our job to communicate our ideas, yet our visuals that obscure that idea, because visual expression isn’t easy or intuitive. We may not have learned it in school but thinking visually is crucial in persuasive communication.

Bringing together compelling content with engaging visuals is a powerful way to move an audience. The Slide:ology® workshop helps you get better at the visual part. It’s not about pretty pictures, it’s about persuasive visual communication.
