Nowadays, just about everyone with access to a computer is creating presentation slides using PowerPoint, Keynote or similar software. But is the message being lost in the mix of templates, animations, logos, clipart and way too much text? Basic design principles can be employed to create clearer, more powerful presentations. Todd Reubold is the director of communications and public affairs at the University of Minnesota's Institute on the Environment.
Over the years he has studied presentation design and worked with a range of topical experts to help them become more effective and engaging communicators. During this program Todd will discuss a range of design principles and best practices aimed at building better presentations.
