Our May program kicks off the start of the new series in our monthly programs, which are aligned with the newly unveiled ASTD Communities of Practice (COP). *In this month's program, we’ll be focusing on the Learning and Development COP.

In this session you'll have the opportunity to:
  • Build a “network” of high-quality reusable slides that can be used in an interactive and engaging way
  • Branch as deep as you need to in order to answer unrelated questions on-the-fly and then return right where the conversation left off when you are done
  • Add real strategic value to an organization because you’ll be making and giving high impact presentations
Bring your laptop so you can experience the amazing non-linear presentation method. You’ll walk away from this seminar with a renewed awe of how you can use PowerPoint to increase your audience’s engagement level and create a network of reusable linked presentations where the sum is greater than the parts. 

Who Should Attend:
Instructional designers, trainers, managers, consultants, business owners.

Make your PowerPoint sing, register today!
