We first re-explore our updated article on how Office 365 programs are updated. We also focus on an interview with Jerry Weissman from a decade ago and find it amazing that everything he said is valid even today.

PowerPoint 2016 for Mac users can explore Theme Fonts. And if that wasn’t enough for this week, make sure you do not miss the quotes, press releases, and templates released in the last seven days.

When business people hear “Let’s schedule a meeting,” they react the same as they would when they hear “Let’s schedule a root canal.”

Meetings have long been—and continue to be—the Bermuda Triangle of business. In 2004, Patrick Lencioni offered his advice to make meetings more productive in his bestselling book, Death by Meeting. This week, conflict-resolution mediator Priya Parker will publish her advice in The Art of Gathering: How We Meet and Why It Matters.

With all due respect to these accomplished authors, let me offer five additional solutions to that chronic problem in the form of rhetorical questions that each leader, as well as each attendee, must be able to answer before and after a meeting—but especially during.

First of all, TJ Walker talks about his new course, Complete Presentation Skills Masterclass for Every Occasion that he is giving away free to Indezine readers. We then explore the art of creating stories, inspired by cinema. We also look at the new Presets in Shape Styles, to be found in Office 365 versions of PowerPoint. We then revisit an amazing post authored by Carmine Gallo, in which he explains how you can create a presentation, the Steve Jobs way. We also updated our Which Themes Are Installed Within Office Versions? page so that you can see and even download every single Theme bundled with all versions of PowerPoint!

Slide Layouts are a very useful feature because they let you use a preset arrangement of placeholders repeatedly, resulting in consistent looking slides. And yes, you can also create your own custom Slide Layouts. While very few users create their own custom Slide Layouts, even fewer will create a custom Slide Layout for pictures! That’s regrettable since Picture Slide Layouts can make your slides look so unique. In this tutorial, we will show you how easy it is to create your own Picture Slide Layout in PowerPoint 2016 for Mac.
