Slidewriting – Create clear slides quickly (March 18th-19th, 2024) – Online Training


Are you fed up with creating presentations? Does it take too long? Are you wasting time on formatting and lacking screen space for your ideas? Moreover, do you get the feeling that your slides do not always excite your audience?

The goal of this training is to quickly create slides and stories that make you stand out, e.g. for a conference, an internal meeting, your thesis defense etc.


In the theoretical part of the training, you will learn techniques for structuring complex information logically and for designing easy-to-understand slides and storylines quickly and effectively. In the practical part, you will then apply these techniques and produce slides and stories for your own work. Ultimately, you will gain a complete draft of your own next presentation.


Practical exercises make up more than 60% of this training. Optionally, you can send an already existing presentation to the trainer and receive written, confidential feedback.


In order to take place in the online training, you need to have a PC/Laptop or a smartphone with an internet connection.
