By the end of this course you will be able to quickly and easily create beautifully designed presentations that you will be able to export and share as Microsoft Powerpoint or pdf documents to either PC or Mac users. This software is really powerful and Mac easier to use than Microsoft Powerpoint for your home or business and you will be able to create presentations that pop.

I will be screen sharing via Zoom so you will be able to see me create, edit and organise the documents live and put your hand up if you are getting stuck.

This course is aimed at beginners for both home and business users and also professionals who want to switch to an easier option than Microsoft Powerpoint. No prior training using the software will be needed as we will be starting from the basics through to the advanced features.
