Messaging on PowerPoint for Results

Secretary helping coworker with computer work

Duration: 1 – 2 day(s)


Writing is a key method of communication in business and is a skill that many people struggle with.

While writing and communication skills have degraded with more and more people communicating through email and text messaging, the skill to write and message specifically to drive an audience towards an outcome is even more scarce, yet a skill that is critical in business.

Developing writing skills in the business world becomes relevant in not only day to day business communication but also when creating high value documents (such as proposals, reports and agendas), giving you that extra edge in the workplace.

This ‘Messaging on PowerPoint for Results’ workshop will enable participants to design and construct persuasive, engaging sales documents presented on PowerPoint. The design will consider the different modalities of how people process information as well as design frameworks that drive outcomes. The construct of the messaging will consider the language of the four types of customers and will focus on messaging in a concise, accurate and politically considered tone to deliver within the business environment.

This immersive workshop will be delivered over two half days. There will be tasks to complete between the two sessions to optimise integration of the capability.

(Note: This workshop does not currently address PowerPoint system skills and presentation delivery skills; it is instead focused on designing and developing persuasive outcome focused documentation on PowerPoint.

However, Glass Rock is able to deliver Power Point Systems Training, which can be experienced as a stand-alone training or elements can be included in the customisation of this training workshop.)
