JUNE 2013 Target’s Top 5 Tips Using PowerPoint

Give Your Training Skills An Upgrade

Each month we will bring you handy tips that will enhance your professional life. This month we look at the best way to use PowerPoint:

1. Don't overuse it PowerPoint is an extremely useful tool, but don’t overwhelm your audience with too many slides, also known as ‘death by PowerPoint’. It should complement what you are saying and not rule the roost.

We are very well known for offering a first-class PTT Train the Trainer course. Many delegates come to us to maximise their skills and for those who have experience we highly recommend that they attend the Advanced PTT Train the Trainer Course.

2. Think ‘B button’

Why upgrade?

3. Keep it simple

The Advanced PTT Train the Trainer Course offer a positive next step in enhancing training skills. The 2-day ILM-accredited course covers:

• Advanced structuring • Advanced facilitating skills • In depth psychology of delivery • Mentoring and support What’s different from the standard course? The major difference is that Advanced PTT Train the Trainer explores the psychology involved using spatial anchoring and embedded questioning. Additionally, it gives a deeper understanding of training structure, including the advanced use of aims and objectives. Reasoning is one of the fascinating topics covered. When we use this technique, we can reason with individuals so they work out the answers. This is a fundamental part of our ‘show not tell’ philosophy and is borne out in the best forms of education - think back to the most effective teachers at school and the chances are they used reasoning.

Using the B button on your keyboard blanks the projector, which is a handy tip that ensures you won't inadvertently provide a screen show. Each slide should be clear and cleanly presented. Don't make them too busy with too much complex information. Stick to a few key points, with shortbut-sweet wording.

4. Introduce bullet points one at a time Run through each point in a gradual manner that is easy to follow, not all at once.

5. Don’t get too fancy

Beware of elaborate transitions, unnecessary gimmicks and music. Always consider the people having to go through it and keep it user-friendly.
