PowerPoint: Managing your content for an effective presentation

Can you imagine any dynamic institution not using PowerPoint? You would also have noted, however, that the quality of presentations varies considerably, so the real question is: can you compile an effective presentation?

On 14 November 2011 the Stellenbosch University Language Centre will be presenting a workshop focusing on guidelines for a successful PowerPoint presentation. Come ask your questions about animation, graphics, font types, layout, content load and textual design to avoid the risk of boring your audience in future. We will cover the basic technical aspects and guidelines of content management for an effective presentation. Our experienced presenters are planning a practical, interactive and fun-filled workshop.

 Registration fee: The SU Skills Fund enables a limited number of SU staff members to attend this workshop free of charge. Please contact Audrey Poole for more information. In the event that a staff member sponsored by the Skills Fund does not attend the workshop, the complete registration fee will be charged to that member’s environment. The cost of the workshop is R1 560 per person, and we can accommodate only 20 participants.

The closing date for entries is 7 November 2011. The workshop will be presented in English but a participant-friendly approach is followed by which participants can switch from English to Afrikaans when necessary.
