PowerPoint Designer in PowerPoint 365 for Windows

PowerPoint design is a field of design that's different than the design of brochures, web sites, and even Word documents. It affords opportunities that these other media do not, and it also does not provide some options you may be used to, especially if you are a print designer. So, what if PowerPoint itself showcased these presentations-specific design opportunities or design possibilities for you? You could then choose to apply a possibility with one click, or ignore—it's your decision. Wouldn't that be awesome? PowerPoint Designer is exactly this option.

Counterintuitive Research Findings

Counterintuitive Research Findings

I have recently completed a research study on what makes PowerPoint presentations memorable. 1,540 people participated in the study and after 48 hours, they remembered an average of 4 slides out of 20 slides they viewed. This finding is perhaps expected: unless there is some repetition and enforcement, memory fades quickly. There were however a few observations that I found surprising and almost counter-intuitive to what we’ve been taught as communicators.

Presentation Procrastinators: 04

Youth is wasted on the young. So said the author George Bernard Shaw. When I was in my 20s and just starting my career, I often felt that people didn’t take me seriously, despite my skills and talents.
