Building Inspiring Presentations

Sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words. An image that makes your audience feel something or a data visualization that makes your message pop can be much more impactful than words when you’re presenting. And yet, most presentation decks are “data dumps,” full of unfocused information and tiny, unreadable charts. This module will show you how to apply simple principles to create slides that are clear, beautiful, and impactful.

This learning experience is part of the persuasion stream of leadership communication. You can learn more about our development philosophy here.

Key Learning Outcomes

Participants will learn how to:

  • Apply principles of horizontal logic to create a message-driven slide deck
  • Apply principles of vertical logic to individual slides to ensure they each support the overall message of the deck
  • Understand how human brains tend to process visual information and work with these principles rather than against them
