Thoughts and impressions of happenings in the world of PowerPoint and presentations, continuously updated since 2003.
Have you been to a presentation where the speaker moved from slide 6 to 15, just because he was running short of time? Did you like that he did not manage his time well, and then ended by skipping most of his content? In our Jumping Slides feature, you’ll learn how to avoid this goof-up. We also explore scholarship opportunities from the upcoming virtual Presentation Summit. We then explore our revamped Arrow Circles product.
We explore the world of widescreen slides, and how to cope up with scenarios when you still need the older, standard resolution slides.

Standout speaking online brings its own challenges that even experienced speakers are grappling with. How do you set up your tech for great eye contact? How do you grab and keep your audience’s attention, especially if you can’t see them? How should you structure what you want to say to maintain interest and land your message? And what about words and gestures? No one denies that giving a talk is daunting at the best of times, but the challenges intensify when it comes to acing your online presentations with Confidence, Connection, and a message that drives Change.
We begin by looking at ways and reasons to hide titles in your PowerPoint slides. Do note we say “hide” rather than “remove” slide titles. We then explore 5 ways to help you remember your speeches.

We all realize that nothing is really free in today’s world, yet we all look for free stuff all the time.

We next feature Jullietta Stoencheva, VP of Customer Success at Pickit, a stock photo house with a difference, where she talks about the new Pickit Documents feature that lets you provide templates and documents to your business employees within Microsoft Office.
We also feature four speakers from the upcoming Presentation Summit 2020 virtual conference: John Rahmlow, Bethany Auck, Julie Terberg, and Echo Swinford. Also, make sure you do not miss the quotes, press releases, and templates featured in the last week.
