Published on

The presentation was designed based on Garr Reynolds' 2010 Presentation Zen Design book and Alexei Kapterev's presentation with the same name. It served to compile simple rules for frequent PowerPoint users and a little guide on how to use PPT effectively with minimal effort. Creating this presentation also supported my social learning through first observing, then imitating what others have done and hopefully I will now be able to apply my new knowledge to other projects. Thanks to the inspiration, Garr and Alexei.
