  • Your introductory or title slide should convey the overall “feeling” and focus of your presentation. For instance, I typically present about small-business trends, new business ideas, growth opportunities or other positive trends. In this sample presentation, I’m talking about new business ideas, so I used a sun graphic in this slide template to convey a positive feeling. Personalize this slide template with your company’s logo. To add a logo to all slides, place it on the Slide Master. To access the Slide Master, on the Themes tab of the Ribbon, click Edit Master and then click Slide Master.

  • I like to use an off-balance layout to keep things from getting too symmetrical. Customize this slide template graphics of your choice, including photos, clip art, your logo or illustrations. Good photos really help cement an idea in the audience’s mind. This slide is animated to display an appropriate image as you introduce each business type.
