PowerPoint is presentation software from Microsoft.  PowerPoint allows you to create slide presentations, and utilizes many different tools that help enhance and increase efficiency and workflow when working on a presentation. For instance, you can coordinate an entire presentation's visual appearance using only two master slides, you can import images, create small animations, and even import video into your presentations. PowerPoint is definitely a powerful tool when you need to create a slide presentation. Not only is the software easy to learn and use, but it is so widely used that there is an abundance of tutorials, backgrounds, animation presets, clip art, and design templates available for download/purchase all over the internet.

    Presentations Tips:


    Keep it minimal: Electronic presentations are very powerful tools. When using an electronic presentation, it should be only an aid to what you have to say. Try to keep information on each slide to a minimum. Place key points and outline the information you have to speak about. 

     Use a custom background: adding a custom background to your presentation helps add a touch more spice and aids in keeping your presentation from being "just another PowerPoint." If you're not sure how to use custom backgrounds, follow our brief video tutorial by clicking the image below:
