About This Class
Do you have a message?
If your presentation stinks, nobody is going to buy your ideas, except for your mom. On the other hand, if your presentation is clear, visually attractive and emotionally engaging, you will sell a lot more tickets.
My name is Tomas Bay and I would like to welcome you to this Skillshare class on creating presentations that rock.
Tired of crappy slides? This class is perfect for anyone who wants to learn how to communicate your message more effectively. We will study Steve Jobs (and others) and show you how to design visually attractive slides that will make people stop and listen.
What are the students saying?
"Fantastic value for money. Got instant training I could use immediately. Super practical, effective advice for simplifying as much as possible!” - Melinda Byerley
"This class is totally awesome! Definitely exceeded my expectation! You can read Prezentation Zen, Slide:ology, The Presentation Secrets of Steve Jobs - these all are great books, but you also can take only one class to learn everything you need and start making great stuff. Thanks, Tomas and SlidesThatRock!” - Alexander Lutsaevsky
Great class - loved the video lectures and the additional resources were really helpful. Thanks for a super class. I felt inspired to try some of their design lessons and will work them into my every day ppt.” - Sala Sihombing
What will you learn?
In this class we will cover the 6 fundamental design principles, which we use at Slides That Rock every day for our own clients:
Exciting Story - What do you want the audience to know?
Solid Structure - How do give your story the right structure?
Simple Slides - How to create simple slides?
Awesome Colors - What color scheme to use?
Cool Fonts - Which fonts are the right ones?
Stunning Images - How and where to find awesome images?
Once you master these design principles, you will be able to create great presentations on any topic. These are universal principles. Why? Because Steve Jobs used them and they really work!
What will you create?
In this class, you will create a 25-30 page presentation promoting your company, product or service. We will help you channel your passion and energy into the story and your slides.
Your presentation will be designed using the principles covered in the class. Ready to Rock?
