Do you "um" and "ah" when you speak to a group? Use too many bullet lists in your presentations? Speak to a group without really engaging each person?

Attend this session to learn how to be a more effective presenter with tools available in Microsoft 365.

We'll discuss and demonstrate how to use CoPilot and PowerPoint Designer to build content slides and create professional slide layouts.

You'll also learn how to get real time feedback about your vocal pacing, pitch, use of filler words, and culturally sensitive terms with Speaker Coach, and how PowerPoint Live in a Teams meeting can engage each person.

We'll wrap this session up with ways to engage Microsoft Teams meeting participants including collaborating in whiteboards and seeking feedback with polls.

You will learn:

  • To be more confident with your public speaking abilities
  • To create more visually appealing PowerPoint presentations
  • Engage and interact with Microsoft Teams meeting participants
