5 Slide Design Tips to Take Home From a Successful IPO Presentation Project

Every presentation that your present is critical! One reason for this is because every time you present, you are standing with your name and reputation behind this presentation. Moreover, you could not be aware of the potential benefits or losses that this presentation could bring to you. In our case, we’ve created a presentation that managed to raise 82 million leva (40+ million euro) for the Gradus IPO. Well, if this is not critical... Our team had the privilege to be invited to work on this project. We decided to share with you some of the tricks which we used while creating the presentation. But just before we start, we should probably inform you how big this IPO was. Let’s just say it’s the biggest one in Bulgaria for the last 10 years and the second biggest in the whole history.

Removing Customizations from PCB Files

Removing Customizations from PCB Files in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

PowerPoint add-ins help in adding new capabilities that can polish your presentation in many ways. But when the time comes to uninstall these add-ins for whatsoever reason, you might be surprised to find their menu customizations, such as buttons that represent add-in features still exist! Click those menu extensions and nothing may happen, but these menu options are still there! In another scenario, you may have customized your PowerPoint menus and toolbars to a large extent. Now, you want to restore everything to a pristine state, almost like how the interface looked when you first installed PowerPoint. In either case, it is possible to lose all these customizations. The key to this solution lies in PCB files.

Imagine that you have a long numbered list that forms the content within your PowerPoint slide.
