Make Visually Stunning PowerPoints


Published on

Slides for a workshop I teach on the expert use of PowerPoint. Covers:
Slide Master -- Use to create custom themes and templates
Text -- How to make your content legible and fun/pretty
Images -- Simple formatting and effects
Autoshapes -- Get creative and make your own design elements and clipart
Animations -- My personal passion. Used effectively, animations can help the audience understand a complex topic, or add visual interest (think motion graphics)
Action buttons -- If your presentation will be distributed to individuals rather than presented, use buttons to give them control over navigation and provide interactivity

Past attendees of the 2 hour workshop sing its praises and were excited by the fun and approachable material.
