What You Get – and What the BIWS
PowerPoint Pro Course
Will Do for You
Take a Look at What You’ll Get
Immediately After Signing Up…
Module 1: PowerPoint Setup, Shapes, And Slides
In this first module of the course, you’ll get a crash course on how to set up PowerPoint properly with the Quick Access Toolbar (QAT) and how to use the ribbon menu, Windows shortcuts, and key commands for alignment, distribution, and formatting.
You’ll also learn about copying and pasting shape formats, duplicating shapes, using default shapes, grouping and ordering shapes, setting up grides, rulers, and drawing guides, and using “Ninja Lines” to accomplish otherwise-impossible alignments.
If you have time for nothing else in this course, you can gain a big advantage in PowerPoint speed and efficiency simply by completing this first module.
Module 2: Text and Table
In this module, you’ll learn about additional text formatting and navigation shortcuts and how to adjust features such as the line spacing, tab stops, and bullet points to create columns and separation within textboxes.
You’ll also learn how to insert and format tables, merge and split cells, distribute rows and columns, and use tables to make plain text look more interesting; the last lesson here presents an exercise involving Ninja Lines, tables, and shapes that requires proficiency with everything taught in this course so far.
Module 3: The Slide Master for Templates and Styling Standards
In this module, you’ll learn how to use the Slide Master to create “Layouts” (templates) for different types of slides and how to use it to set up headers, footers, slide numbers, formatting guides, and company logos.
You’ll also learn about the key drawbacks of the Slide Master, including common formatting problems, and you’ll get an introduction to the structure of investment banking pitch books and tutorials on Sections and viewing modes (the Slide Sorter View, Reading View, Outline View, and more).
Module 4: Inserting Excel Models, Charts/Graphs, Images, and Word Data
In this module, you’ll learn how to insert Excel models, charts/graphs, images, Word data, and custom objects such as maps into PowerPoint; you’ll also learn how to create and format charts natively in PowerPoint without an external Excel file.
Focus areas include the most common investment banking-style graphs, such as peer benchmarking analyses and “football field” valuation summaries, and how to find, format, align, and distribute company logos for slides with potential buyers and sellers.
Module 5: Shortcut and Macro Practice Exercises to Create the Remaining Slides
In this module, you’ll complete practice exercises to finish the remaining slides in the Jazz Pharmaceuticals presentation using a combination of built-in PowerPoint commands/shortcuts and the macro package from Module 7.
You’ll learn how to combine graphs and tables, how to fix Excel formatting issues, and how to create more complex slides with timelines, SmartArt, and connector lines that join together different shapes and diagrams.
Module 6: Bank Pitch Book Database and Editable Slide Templates
In this module, you’ll get a database of 175+ real bank presentations hosted on the sec.gov website across different industries and deal types, you’ll learn how to use it and find new presentations, and you’ll get a set of 50+ editable slide templates based on many of these presentations.
Module 7: Outside Tools, Add-Ins, VBA, And Macros (Full VBA Course)
In this module, you’ll get a crash course on VBA and macros in PowerPoint, and you’ll build many of the macros included in the BIWS package provided in this course. You’ll start with the basics, such as a macro to swap two shapes’ positions, and build up to more complex ones involving drawing guides, tables, and objects such as Harvey Balls and Calendars.
Along the way, you’ll learn how to manipulate slides, layouts, shapes, tables, images, and their attributes within VBA, and you’ll test the macros and fix problems.

If there’s anything at all you don’t understand, just go to the “Question/Comment” area below each and every lesson, and ask your question there.
These comments are monitored and responded to by our expert support team – every one of whom has personal experience working on deals at investment banks, private equity firms, and/or other finance firms.

We also cannot provide play-by-play support with an earpiece during interviews.
Finally, we cannot answer questions about topics not covered in the course, such as how to use Google Slides or how to create animations for unicorns or magical jumping cats.
We’re happy to answer career-related, qualitative, and technical questions that are related to the course materials.
So, What’s Your Investment inthe PowerPoint Pro Course?
To put this in context, let’s look at your Return on Investment in this course…
The pay for entry-level investment banking jobs varies from year to year, but it’s safe to say that even entry-level Analysts earn between $150,000 and $200,000 USD right out of university.
At the MBA level, that climbs to $250,000 to $450,000 USD – and as you progress, your total compensation only gets higher and higher, with top bankers earning 7 figures annually.
And every top banker had to start at the entry level and get their foot in the door, just like you today.
Compared with the potential upside, the enrollment fee for this course is nominal:
Your investment in the full PowerPoint Pro course (including ALL of the valuable content and training detailed above) is just $197.
Here’s how you can think of that course enrollment fee:
- If you tried to learn everything here by yourself instead, it would take you at least 50-60 hours – and you’d have no one to check your work or answer your questions. Even if you assume a rate of only $10 per hour, self-study would cost you at least $500 – $600 worth of time.
- Once you’re in investment banking, you might be working on a pitch book at 3 AM and suddenly realize that you don’t know how to fix a formatting problem…
Leave in that kind of error and you’ll hear all about it in your year-end review – it’s a competitive field, and everyone else is hyper-attentive to detail.
Bonus tiers for Analysts can be $5,000 to $10,000 USD apart – so simple formatting errors in your presentations could actually cost you $5,000 to $10,000.
Or, you could just sign up for PowerPoint Pro and prevent all that from happening.
By doing so, you:
- Save yourself potentially hours of time each day – worth $30,000+ at annual
compensation of $150,000, or $40,000+ at yearly compensation of $200,000.
- Get training that would normally cost you at least $500 – $600 in opportunity cost,
and likely far more than that.
- Avoid the key pitfalls that might cost you $5,000, $10,000, or more in lost earnings
from your year-end bonus.
- And significantly improve your chances of winning jobs that pay $150,000 – $200,000 or more per year, even when you’re first starting out. That’s at least a ~760x return on investment, and possibly more like a ~1,000x ROI.
There is simply no other way to get this level of training… this level of support, help, and troubleshooting on demand… this level of testing and practice… and this level of access to a community of thousands of peers…
…at ANY price!
To date, over 56,763+ people have invested in BIWS training and gone on to secure lucrative and stimulating jobs in the industry.
I want you to be next, and I want to make this a “no-brainer” decision for you.
