Create a simple presentation with Canva that shares your small charity or community group’s message using storytelling and design techniques

Crafting and sharing presentations is an essential part of everyday working life for small charities and community organisations to share what they know is happening in their communities or explain what they do.

But how can we craft a presentation that engages our audience and motivates action?

Every element you use in a presentation has a function, from your first slide to a well-placed powerful image. Or even a recording of someone whose voice needs to be heard and has a valuable story to share.

Long bullet-point lists, endless text and poor design are likely to leave your audience snoring.

Join this course to learn how to create a compelling digital presentation that captivates and inspires. And that backs up what you have to say about issues that matter.

This session will cover

  • Identify what makes a well-designed presentation
  • Craft a compelling presentation that tells your story to your audience
  • Use images, infographics, audio and video for greater impact
  • Identify digital tools to create and share your content
  • Create a short impactful presentation using Canva
  • You’ll also start planning your next presentation and come away with some tips for delivering your presentation to a live audience.

Is this course for me?

This course is for staff or volunteers who may be giving or need to give impactful presentations about their organisation’s work with stakeholders. Please note priority for this course will be given to Trust for London funded small charities & community groups in London, but places are available for other groups.
