Training Webinar: How to Use Animation for High-Impact Communication

Learn why flying text makes people hate you,
But well-done animation makes you a hero!

Taught by Ellen Finkelstein, PowerPoint MVP

I start with the basics, then move on to advanced animation techniques.

Then, you'll learn 10 animations you can use in any presentation. These animations will become your essential go-to techniques, because they turn ho-hum slides into high-impact communication, by:

  • Helping your audience understand and remember more of what you're saying
  • Helping you to make complex concepts clear
  • Adding a designer, professional touch to your presentations

These animations will make it EASY for you to add professional-grade animation to your presentations.

How to Use Animation for High-Impact Communication

They work for text, tables, charts, and images. They aren't gaudy, so you can use them for business and training presentations without making your slides look silly.

Finally, I'll provide links to step-by-step instructions for 16 more animation techniques.

What you'll get

You won't want to miss this 1-1/2 hour training webinar, which includes the following:

  1. 1 hour of solid training–everything you need to know about technique and best practices
  2. 15 minutes of demonstrations, showing you how to make over boring slides and create animations from scratch
  3. 15 minutes of Q&A

You'll also get:

  • A complete handout with all the instructions in the training section
  • The presentation file I use, so you can take apart the animation and work with it at your own pace

I'll cover PowerPoint 2003, 2007 & the new 2010 Animations tab on the ribbon.

Comments from attendees

"Ellen, I wanted to email you with some feedback I got just today from a presentation I prepared last week for someone here in my office. I started working with PowerPoint about three months ago and I have your website to thank for getting me started in the right direction. I invested in the latest Webinar series and I actually used a couple of new things I learned in the first one (June 1). This is where accolades put the rubber to the road – my skills are helping to generate money for my firm by making professional and interesting presentations and I’m a big part of that – thanks to you! 'I have to particularly acknowledge Maril for awesome PowerPoint point design under a tight deadline — it was very professional and gave a good impression.' This was like music to my ears. Thank you, Ellen, for your website, books and all that you provide to help make us better." – Maril R.

Fantastic training session!!! As always, I just love your training sessions.” – Sheila Jones
