Construct Clear Flowcharts Like a Pro with Microsoft PowerPoint

The key to effective visual communication lies in an intuitively understandable design – while most working professionals face little issues with communicating text and data in a slide, creating an intuitive Flowchart which fits in perfectly in a slide remains a crux, even for professional designers.

While several Flowchart design tools exist, optimizing a Flowchart to be presented within a slide poses a challenge for many – should the Flowchart take on a “Hero” layout? Or should legibility be compromised by reducing the Flowcharts size? Or should the Flowchart be created with SmartArt instead?

Construct Clear Flowcharts Like a Pro with Microsoft PowerPoint is developed to equip participants with the confidence and competence to create intuitive and professional Flowcharts using Microsoft PowerPoint. Participants will be introduced to the 4 main types of Flowcharts, the key symbols used to communicate various aspects of information, and their importance in Flowchart design.

Through case studies, participants will be introduced to common Flowchart design mistakes and gain a clearer understanding on how every aspect of design shapes how their audience interprets and interacts with the Flowcharts created.

Participants will also be acquainted with the essential tools, functions, and resources used in creating Flowcharts, and will learn how to harness them to create professional and stunning Flowcharts through actionable hands-on activities during this workshop.
