Course Overview

Many presenters behave as though they are delivering a lecture. Peter Quarry suggests keeping information succinct, sign-posting as you go, don’t pepper slides with lots of text, and selecting between four and seven main points (nuggets). Be sure to flag these points, the better to keep the audience focused.

Peter Quarry believes presentations needn’t be dull. They should be concise, relevant, using headlines, not text.
