ICDL Perform Advanced Presentation Functions (PowerPoint Advanced)

Have you ever dreamt of creating stunning PowerPoint presentations to captivate the attention of your audiences, to send across your message with punch, so that you can leave a lasting impact on your audiences’ minds?

This need not be a dream if you are able to familiarize yourself with advanced presentation functions and apply them strategically to your work presentations.

Perhaps, you have always felt that only good speakers can deliver good presentations to wow their audience?

Contrary to this belief, a good speaker also needs to be backed up by a presentation slide deck with visually well-organized information for their presentations to be truly effective.

As the saying goes, seeing is believing.

Nowadays, people want to be able to see for themselves the facts and supporting data before they can be convinced to accept proposed ideas based on prevailing trends shown in data.

Upon the completion of this course and passing the assessment, you will be awarded

  • an e-cert of SOA (Statement of Attainment) by SSG

  • a hard copy certificate by ICDL Asia (International Computer Driving License)

These certifications are recognised worldwide.
