PowerPoint Pro 2.0 is the only course on the market at any price that teaches you how to master PowerPoint as it is used in investment banking, private equity, hedge funds, and other finance roles.By “master,” we don’t mean “Here’s how you Save a File!” or “Look, here’s how you insert a text box on a slide!”We mean: “Here’s how you optimize your entire PowerPoint setup and create custom shortcuts to maximize your speed, learn all the ninja tricks for alignment, distribution, and formatting that no one else knows, and get practice creating the most common presentation and slide types used in the finance industry.”By the end, you’ll be a speed demon in PowerPoint.Here’s what the full course includes, and how it will help you save hours of time, leave the office earlier, and put yourself on the fast-track for bonuses and promotions:
- Optimize Your PowerPoint Setup: The first and most important step is to customize your PowerPoint setup and add the most common commands to the Quick Access Toolbar (QAT). This process alone will save you hours of time, and yet most people don’t do it at all – or they do it incorrectly. We’ll show you the ropes and explain how to use the interface, common commands, and shortcuts as efficiently as possible.
- Master Shapes, Text, and Formatting: These are the key building blocks you need for anyslide or presentation – so you’ll learn the fundamentals, including how to insert and draw them properly, how to align them anywhere, and how to distribute, group, and format them, including features like the Format Dipper and Default Shapes that are grossly underused but incredibly useful.
- Organize Your Presentations Like a Pro:You’ll learn how to use the Slide Master and Sections to organize and rearrange entire presentations, create templates for company profile slides, and make the editing process more efficient; you’ll even learn the subtleties that other courses completely skip over, like Placeholders vs. normal objects within the Slide Master.
- Paste in and Format Excel Charts, Diagrams, and More: This is one of the most critical tasks you’ll complete in finance, and you’ll triple your efficiency after watching the lessons here – we cover everything from financial model paste-ins to valuation bar charts to “football field” graphs, and even show you how to manipulate company logos, tables, and text from Word.
- Learn by Watching and Practicing Yourself:Almost every lesson in the course includes a practice exercise at the end so you can test your knowledge and understanding, and get even faster with the key shortcuts. The entire last module of the course also consists of additional practice exercises where you test yourself by creating new slides, fixing problems on existing slides, and re-creating slides from scratch.
- Get Dozens of Sample Pitch Book, Presentation, and Company and Deal Profile Layouts: Two modules of the course are dedicated to different slide layouts for 1-page, 2-page, column, quadrant, and multiple-row profile layouts, as well as sample 1-page and multi-page deal profiles you can use at assessment centers and in case study-based interviews. You’ll get practice creating these profiles, and then you’ll get hundreds of presentations from banks that use different layouts (NOTE: These are not PowerPoint files, just images and HTML files from public filings).
- Gain a Greater Attention to Detail Than Veteran Bankers: You’ll get practice applying “finishing touches” to a presentation, incorporating a senior banker’s feedback and changes, and fixing spelling, grammar, and other alignment issues across different slides. The lack of attention to detail is a top reason for lower bonuses and poor year-end reviews… and you avoid all that with this set of lessons.
- Learn More Advanced Features That Let You Accomplish Ordinarily Impossible Tasks:You’ll learn to use “Ninja Lines” to align shapes into positions that would ordinarily be impossible; you’ll also learn how to merge shapes and create and modify SmartArt to create new types of shapes such as Harvey Balls that are not built into PowerPoint.
- Full, Word-for-Word Transcripts and Quick Reference Guides: Video is great, but sometimes you want it in writing as well. So each lesson in the course comes with a full, word-for-word transcript – and you get quick reference guides for the keyboard shortcuts (both built-in and custom shortcuts) and how to use the course effectively and efficiently.
- Track Your Progress and Take Notes: Check off each lesson as you go, and take notes you can refer back to in the future so you can make your study time fast and productive. You can even print out all your notes at once when you find out about that interview 2 hours from now and need a sudden crash course.
- Test Yourself with In-Video and End-of-Module Quizzes: In addition to following along and completing your own exercises, you’ll also answer quiz questions in the “Large” version of each video, and you can review all the questions at the end of each module in the course. Full answer keys and explanations for all the quiz questions are also provided.
- 365-Day-Per-Year Expert Support: We have a team of experienced Investment Bankersstanding by to respond to your questions, comments, and emails 365 days per year, for as long as you need. This is like having your own modeling and presentation “wingman” on tap – and you never know when you’ll need that tip that saves you 3 hours of time and lets you finish on time!
- Unconditional 12-Month Money-Back Guarantee: We’re so convinced that PowerPoint Pro is the most practical and effective program of its kind that it comes with an unconditional, 12-month money-back guarantee. That’s how much we believe in these courses.
What You Get – and WhatPowerPoint ProWill Do for YouWhen you’re interviewing for internships and full-time jobs at investment banks, private equity firms, and hedge funds, a few questions will come up over and over again…
- Can you analyze a recent deal and discuss it with us?
- Can you create a short slide deck on the merits of this acquisition?
- Can you pitch us a stock and make a long/short recommendation?
- Can you recommend which company we should acquire?
A long time ago, interviews focused more on specific technical questions……but over time, they have become increasingly case study-based, especially at smaller firms and for buy-side roles.To answer these questions and present deals, stock pitches, and investment recommendations, you have to understand both the structure of presentations and the mechanics of how to craft them.You’ll master both of those with the 49 lessons in the PowerPoint Pro course.And then when you’re on the job, you’ll be using PowerPoint for hours each day – especially in investment banking roles.Here are the tasks you’ll routinely have to complete:
- Managing Director in Investment Banking: “Please draft a pitch book to describe a potential client’s valuation, and recommend an appropriate M&A process to the client.”
- Hedge Fund Portfolio Manager: “Draft a few slides on whether or not we should continue looking into this company as a potential investment.”
- Private Equity Partner: “Draft a memo for the investment committee and describe your findings on this company – and please make an investment recommendation.”
- Vice President in Investment Banking: “Please do some research on potential buyers in this market, and create a 2-page profile for the best one and 1-page company profiles on the 5 next-best acquirers.”
Through the course, you’ll learn how to accomplish all of those tasks – and much more.The core lessons are based on a case study of a sell-side M&A / valuation pitch book for Jazz Pharmaceuticals, where you present your valuation of the company and illustrate your findings using charts, graphs, and other visuals rather than boring blocks of text:
Once you learn how to create each slide in this presentation, you’ll expand your knowledge via other presentations and company / deal profiles.You’ll get hundreds of real presentations used by banks (NOTE: These are HTML and image files, not editable presentations), along with representative PowerPoint presentations that you might use in hedge fund and private equity roles.And toward the end of the course, you’ll get many examples of deal and company profiles that you can immediately put to use for all the tasks above:
- A one-page company profile template.
- A more detailed two-page company profile template.
- A two-column company profile template.
- A quadrant profile template (i.e., four companies per slide).
- A “profile summary” template for ten rows of company profiles per slide.
- A one-page M&A deal profile template you might use in an investment banking-style presentation.
- An eight-page M&A deal profile template you might use at an assessment center in London (or other regions that use ACs).
These templates are all based on real companies and real deals: examples include large pharmaceutical acquirers and the $4 billion leveraged buyout of Life Time Fitness by TPG and Leonard Green.
