Topics for Engineers - PowerPoint (Two Hours)

Engineering presentation topics are often centered on highly complex and rather difficult subject matter that is foreign to most not working in the engineering field. These topics can be further convoluted by poorly structured presentations that fail to take advantage of visual aids and PowerPoint slides to reinforce concepts. A great majority of engineers are not at fault as most don’t have any idea how to effectively use PowerPoint to enhance their presentation topics. With solid instruction and public speaking training, a hard-to-follow presenter can benefit tremendously and increase presentation and visual aid effectiveness. Our two-hour PowerPoint Presentation Topics for Engineers training program is designed to teach engineers the ability to tap into the capabilities of PowerPoint when presenting complex topics to colleagues, customers or co-workers.

This training seminar enables engineers to focus on the use of a powerful public speaking tool that is sometimes neglected during many presentations. Some engineers use PowerPoint grudgingly and simply fill each slide with multiple topics without focusing on structure. Others understand the importance of using PowerPoint but don’t know how to tap into its many features to discuss complex topics. The informative PowerPoint Public Speaking for Engineers training session utilizes various topics to focus on multiple aspects of PowerPoint usage including how to communicate with the audience when using slides, how to structure and lay out slides and how other tools such as Visio can strengthen a presentation topic. These valuable public speaking skills can be used whether one has to lead a construction project status meeting or deliver a breakout session topic to fellow engineers. Attendees practice by building PowerPoint slides they would ideally use within 60-90 days of attending the training class. Discussion sessions, exercises and other activities allow participants to put to use the skills taught. This approach allows engineers to learn by doing so that Public Speaking skills can immediately be used in the workplace or in the field.
