PowerPoint Pro teaches you everything you need to know about PowerPoint Pro for investment banking and private equity, from navigation basics and slides, text, and objects up through pasting in Excel data, grouping and aligning shapes, and then putting the finishing touches on your presentation.
You’ll learn everything via practice exercises included in each lesson, as you create a buy-side M&A pitch book – as you would at a real investment bank.
In addition, each video is captioned with the shortcut keys we use throughout so that you can easily fall along and learn by watching and by doing.
