Workshop Synopsis (Abstract):

This workshop trains you to design compelling Microsoft PowerPoint presentation based on Richard Mayer’s Cognitive Theory of Multimedia Learning, a mind science solution for effective multimedia presentation. By applying the theory’s ten multimedia principles, you will be able to design and present multimedia presentations that are in tune with the mind’s cognitive processing of incoming visual and audio information. The training focuses on overcoming the Copy & Paste Phenomenon, a widespread habit amongst Microsoft PowerPoint presenters. One should realize that presentation format as compared to a reading format copied and pasted from various sources are not the same in its effectiveness in delivering instructions. Failure to present messages that are cognitively in-tune with the mind will adversely impact the delivery of your presentation, thus the breakdown in communication with your audience. This course will provide insights and practical tips on mind science that will elevate your presentation skills one notch higher. Executives who regularly make presentations are suitable to attend this 2-day workshop to sharpen the presentation skills.
