Smart attorneys know that it’s not enough to have the best argument or the perfect solution—you also need to be able to communicate ideas effectively. This is certainly the case when it comes to PowerPoint presentations.

Flashes of Brilliance is a dynamic program that shows you how to create and deliver winning visual presentations regardless of your design abilities or background. During this interactive workshop, you’ll discover how people want to receive information and you’ll see slides transformed from bad-to-great right before your eyes. Attendees are even encouraged to bring their own PowerPoint decks to modify and update in real time.

Specifically, you will learn to:
  • Deliver complex information in compelling, easy-to-understand ways.
  • Present your slides while staying connected to your audience.
  • Leverage the strength of PowerPoint without being dominated by it.
