Free Microsoft PowerPoint Training, Tips and Tricks
When people ask me to teach them about Microsoft PowerPoint I first ask them how much experience they have with Microsoft Word. If you don’t have a lot of experience with Microsoft Word I usually suggest that you start your training by learning Microsoft Word.
PowerPoint is for telling stories. You can tell stories with words, colors, pictures and artwork, videos, sound, timing and more. When you sit down to create a PowerPoint presentation you are working with a blank slate. You are a producer and director all rolled up into one. My experience has been that the quality of your presentation is directly related to the amount of time you have to put into it. I also believe that PowerPoint presentations can be overproduced. Keep in mind the goal here is to get your point across, to convey a message; not to show your audience how skilled you are with PowerPoint.
