Rhetoric with PowerPoint
Powerful PowerPoint presentations
A public speaker often needs a PowerPoint presentation to emphasize certain points, enhance the visual experience of the speech or create an emotional reaction from the audience.
But as a public speaker your words and personal performance are your most crucial presentation tools – while PowerPoint is simply a visual aid. It must never steal your spotlight but only be used to emphasize and enhance your verbal points and messages.
How do we work?
We base our teachings on concrete tools and universal rhetorical points – and you will learn to:
- Design simple, functional and visually appealing slides
- Produce a performance that will be remembered long after instead of just a slideshow
- Enhance your points with contrasts, stories, analogies and other rhetorical tools
- Bridge the gap to your audience and appeal to their senses
How does it take place?
This module is a one-day workshop from 9-16 and includes catering.
All participants will bring a laptop containing a PowerPoint presentation that was prepared in advance. At the beginning of the workshop everybody will deliver their presentation and receive personal feedback from the teacher and other participants. Then one rhetorical tool at a time is introduced and everybody will incorporate that tool into his or her own presentation, which as a result gradually improves. At the end of the day everybody will present again. In our experience all presentations will have improved dramatically through the use of simple tools.
What do you get out of it?
This workshop strengthens your personal ability to communicate and convince, thereby enhancing your rhetorical impact. Dramatically. You will master simple techniques to present strategies, projects or technical information orally, supported by PowerPoint, and in the process feel more confident when delivering a PowerPoint presentation.
Independent workshop or a full education in rhetorics?
All of our modules are available as independent one- or two-day workshops. If you feel passionate about written and oral communication, you can also choose to embark on Rhetors’ basic education in Rhetorics. You get seven complete modules including this one and a progymnasmata – a personal rhetorical analysis. Additionally you receive two hours of personal rhetorical counseling.
We do what we teach – every day. We are the first business in Denmark to specialize in rhetorics. The art of writing a great speech is a personal vocation for us and for over 20 years we have dedicated ourselves to teaching others how to speak, write and perform. All of our rhetorical advisers have a university degree in Rhetorics or Communication, but we are especially known for thinking out of the box. In doing so we have developed a unique and insightful teaching method.
