We’ve all been in presentations that feature “Death By PowerPoint”, with slides crammed with unreadable text, complicated graphics and pages of bullet points. These presentations are invariably boring, ineffective and easily forgotten. In this masterclass with communications expert Alastair Greener, you’ll learn the 10 key steps to creating engaging PowerPoint presentations that will be effective and memorable for the right reasons.

Here’s how it goes…

  • To begin with, our guest speaker does a 30-45 minute talk and are told three things and three things only. Be provocative, be educational, and DO NOT sell. You cannot imagine how cool and insightful our guests have been so far!
  • Then the event is followed by Q+A and a relaxed social hangout where members and guests have a drink – whether you fancy an ice cold beer or a glass of lemonade. This is a great chance to meet new people in Swindon with fascinating startups, stories and ambitions!
  • Please note, although our Hangouts are set to finish at 9 PM, there is time for socialising, networking and Q+A’s after the speaker has finished, this means some attendees choose to stay later. But feel free to leave whenever you feel necessary after Alastair Greener has finished talking.
