PowerPoint 2019 for Windows’s tri-paned interface has three regions: the Slides Pane, the Slide Area, and the Notes Pane. The Notes Pane is placed right below the Slide Area. The Notes Pane provides space to add speaker’s notes that can be so helpful to the presenter while presenting. You can also add any text here that contains any sort of information about the presentation or individual slide.

To help deliver specific feedback sincerely and supportively I’ll outline some simple yet profound principles that will help transform your approach to feedback. And easy way to remember the approach is FAST:
In our series on Presentation Management, we look at how presentation management evolved from one-and-done to becoming an enterprise asset. We also explore whether all pictures are really worth a thousand words? In the third part of the Presentation Procrastinators series, Kevin Lerner suggests ways to collaborate with busy executives. We also look at 7 hacks for college presentations. We explore the color, blue–and then look at RGB colors in decimal and hexadecimal values.
PowerPoint 365 for Windows users can learn about the Interface. PowerPoint 2016 for Windows users can explore working with HSL colors. And if that wasn’t enough for this week, make sure you do not miss the quotes, press releases, and templates featured in the last week.
