New to PowerPoint? Or still not 100% confident using PowerPoint?

You may be suffering from PoorPointitis!

If you know every single feature of a car, can you become a great driver?

No? Yet, this is exactly what presenters do...

Our research showed that most presenters learnt PowerPoint by the ‘list of tools’ method. They read through books, and help files online, and maybe sometimes attended a workshop for a day or two that went through every single tool in PowerPoint...

This is like trying be a car driver by learning the list of features in the car. To learn to drive properly, you have to get in the car, and drive along with an experienced person next to you. You have to do this at least a few times before you feel confident enough to take your driver’s test.

Using PowerPoint the right way, is exactly the same. You can fiddle around with the tools, and read through every single of its 100s of features. But in the end you just don’t feel comfortable using the software.

Again and again we’ve had presenters ask us questions like...

  • How did I create a copy of the file? I don’t want my original PowerPoint file edited.
  • Where will I find my file? It has disappeared!
  • Is there an easier way to make all the fonts in the file look consistent?
  • Is there a better way to get rid of the offending slide background?
  • and more...

It feels is like PowerPoint has used some black magic just for the purpose of troubling presenters. 

If you ever felt that way…

….it is because of the ‘inefficient’ method of learning PowerPoint

If you haven’t really got into using the software yet, lucky you…

...you can avoid all the hours of headache…

I’ll tell you how in a minute…

The point is that PowerPoint is extraordinarily flexible. It allows you to do a simple thing like add text boxes in at least 3 different ways.

So presenters look around and find the easiest way - they pull a text box from the Shapes menu and drop it in the slide.

Unfortunately, this way of going about it leads to hours of formatting issues later. The textbox looks odd as it doesn’t align with everything else on the slide. It goes out of the slide, when it is copied into another presentation...

The font used in each text box is different…and so on.

The result is that...

 > It makes your slides look unprofessional and...

> it takes hours to go through each slide and correct these issues.

...and the same thing happens in the next presentation and the next...and the next….!

Do you see how a simple thing like a text box added the ‘inefficient’ way can lead to lifelong formatting nightmare?

So coming to the point I mentioned earlier…

  • How do you approach learning PowerPoint where there is someone right along with you, as you are in the drivers seat...
  • How do you learn the right tools to create presentations the ‘efficient’ way ? 
  • How do you get the power of the time saving tools ...to save hours of frustration later... 
  • How do you actually enjoy the process of using PowerPoint, - and focus on sharing your ideas rather than locating a tool? 
  • How can you feel confident when you open your PowerPoint file, because you know which option to use and which tool to click on… 
  • How do you avoid wading through 100s of pages of a Dummy’s guide or 100s of random articles when you want to make a simple change?

Which is when Ramgopal and I sat down and put together this absolutely essential course on PowerPoint...called “PowerPoint Accelerator Program" to help presenters get from Opening PowerPoint To Presenting in the Boardroom in just 4 days

( If you are wondering who we are, you can Google us later, I’m Arte Ranganathan and you’ll find pages and pages of information & interviews about our years of experience as business presenters.)

The PowerPoint Accelerator Program Training covers only what is absolutely truly and really important for a presenter to know. Only the tools that will help you cut down the time to create & format slides…

...because it is the ‘efficient’ way.

… and because we are business presenters, the real practical reason ‘why’ you need to use a particular tool.

The training video starts from the very beginning that is, opening PowerPoint and takes you through everything you need to know in about 140 minutes of training videos…

It is all recorded by Ramgopal and he takes you through every step in his own unique way of training. His training videos get this kind of feedback from presenters all over the world...

...and a lot more feedback like this over the years….
