About this workshop

“A good presentation is a mix of logic, data, emotion, and inspiration.” Garr Reynolds, author of the book Presentation Zen

Bad decks are the bane of everyone’s work life—all of us have either sat through a mind-numbing presentation, or struggled with how to make one more compelling.

In this class, you’ll learn principles and best practices for providing structure and logic to your presentation and discover how you can use basic design principles to elevate your slide layouts and visuals to inspire and engage your audience. Whether you are a sales person, a teacher, an entrepreneur, or anyone whose job it is to build decks as part of their work, learn the skills it takes to make more beautiful—and effective—presentations.


  • Learn how how basic design principles can be used to strengthen your deck layout and enhance its effectiveness
  • Understand how to create a logical presentation flow and orient your audience within it
  • Use visuals and storytelling techniques to engage people
