No one is born with a fear of public speaking; it is something we learn, so we can equally learn to quash the debilitating nerves and harness the good nerves that give us positive energy and presence on stage. To achieve this, we need to reprogram our mindset and make friends with our nerves:

We already explored what Color Models are, and we then looked at the RGB color model that uses three primary colors: Red, Green, and Blue to mix and create almost 16 million colors. All RGB colors have values for all the three colors that you mix: R, G, and B. Assuming someone has provided you with an RGB value, and asked you to add a rectangle of that color to a slide, then how do you proceed within PowerPoint?

When you land the job of creating or re-branding a large or even mega-size company’s identity there’s usually a long list of people involved on both the client and agency side of the business and everyone wants their say on how things should look.  With over 25 years in this business, I can tell you that the art, design, and identity all gets done and signed-off on by the client before the presentation builder even gets a chance to comment about building functionality to what just got dumped on his/her lap.  Only the savviest organizations work the function and design simultaneously, most don’t, it’s a result of how the majority design, ad agency, and branding firms are structured and how project managers and design teams operate together.  The truth is even some of the larger firms farm out their template building at the very end of the process.

PowerPoint 2016 for Mac continues to providing several views that enable you to view and edit your slides. Unarguably, Normal view is the default and most often used view. This view displays one slide at a time in the Slide Area, and is used mainly for editing and creating slides, and shows PowerPoint’s typical tri-pane interface that includes the Slides Pane, the Slide Area, and the Notes Pane.

Do you know whether your organization is using its best digital assets to increase conversions and drive sales? And even if you are, are relevant stakeholders—like members of the sales team, executives, and financiers—able to easily retrieve those assets? Or do they usually end up having to spend several minutes—or even longer—searching for the most impactful content?

If you’re not sure about the answers to these questions, chances are your presentation management strategy needs to be reassessed. If that’s the case, take comfort in the fact that you’re not alone.

Believe it or not, 57% of B2B customers say that salespeople aren’t prepared for their first meeting. If your sales team falls into this category, the good news is that—by making appropriate changes to your presentation management approach—you’ll be able to gain a competitive advantage on a majority of your competitors.

Most of the time, you may work on a single slide in your PowerPoint presentation, but there are times when you want to copy, duplicate, reorder, or even delete a bunch of slides. It’s in scenarios like these that you will encounter PowerPoint 2016’s Slide Sorter view. Among the various views available in PowerPoint 2016 for Mac to play and edit your presentations, we have already covered both Normal view and Outline view. Although Slide Sorter view does not let you edit individual slide objects, it does let you work with the whole slide itself. Any edits made will influence one or more slides, depending upon your selection.
