Effective presentations are becoming more important for career success. A survey of incoming MBA students at MIT’s Sloan School of Management reported that two-thirds of the respondents said they presented on a daily or weekly basis. Well known entrepreneur Richard Branson said that “Communication is the most important skill any leader can possess.” A Harvard Business Review article reporting on a survey of senior consultants at a top executive search firm reported that “Communication and presentation” was one of the top skills companies look for when recruiting executives.

If you identify with these challenges, I can help. My name is Dave Paradi and I teach corporate professionals to use PowerPoint to visually communicate the messages in their data so they don’t overwhelm and confuse executives. I have written nine books on the topic and am one of sixteen people in North America recognized by Microsoft with the PowerPoint Most Valuable Professional award for my contributions to the community. I conduct customized in-house workshops for organizations all over North America. I can help you create more effective presentations too.
I have created this self-study course so you can have access to the same high quality information that I share with my corporate clients. You can go at your own pace as you have the time. I give you access to all of the content as soon as you register so that you can jump to what you need to learn if you have an upcoming deadline.

The course is divided into modules and lessons so you can track your progress or jump to what you need to learn right now. You can see the whole course below and read the course overview. In each module I include:
This course is the closest you can come to being live in the room with me at a customized session for one of my clients.

Register today and start on the path to creating and delivering more effective presentations in your current role and in the many more senior roles you will be promoted to.
