Presentations skills training classes are provided across the country via public open enrollment classes in most major metropolitan areas throughout the US and Canada and can also be delivered on-site via private presentations classes. Our presentation skills training classes can be provided as off-the-shelf seminars, ready to be delivered to a diverse audience or can be customized to provide a tailored presentation approach or in house presentation training classes based on client needs. All presentations classes are limited to a maximum of twelve participants so as to increase the presentation training class or classes effectiveness and provide the individual level of presentation coaching and interaction that is associated with the Presentations Skills Training Center.

Before you start preparing your presentation firstly decide upon the design that you intend to use. It is important to do this at the start as changing your design part way through can cause considerably more work in the long-run due to the adjustments you will have to make to individual slides due to mis-aligned text etc.
Once you have decided upon a design you can start to develop the basic framework of the presentation namely a title page, 'housekeeping' page featuring things such as the location of toilets and the fire exit procedures, a 'groundrules' page featuring things such as switching off mobile phones, a learning outcomes page with a broad overview of what the session hopes to achieve and a closing page providing your contact details and thanking the group for their participation.
Then decide upon and start to introduce your content, it does to have to initially be in order as the slides can easily be re-arranged at a later time, the main thing is to get the content on the screen.
Once you have inputted and organised your content into the correct order you need to decide which (if any) transitions you will use between each slide, this may be a fade or a 'wipe' effect. Such transitions, although quite neat to look at, are not purely necessary. Then move onto looking at the way in which the text will appear on the page, will it appear all at once? a line at a time? it is better for text to appear gradually, as you speak so that the delegates will not be able to read ahead, it is very confusing to listen to one thing whilst reading another!
The next task is to put a full stop (.) at the end of the last sentence on each page, this way you will never forget what the last thing to appear is. This will prevent you accidentally travelling to the next slide when you believe there is another sentence within the current slide. In the heat of the moment it is surprisingly easy to forget.
Now, go through your presentation, take your time and check that things appear int he correct order, that fonts and the arrangement of each page is consistent, that there are no spelling errors and that it 'flows'.
