How to Touch Your Audience When Presenting to Them Online

November 5, 2020

For many people who now have to join online meetings, the worries created are rather more than the usual jitters you might get before giving a business presentation. Yet, despite the change in platform, the question: “How do I connect with an online audience?” has a similar answer to the other question “How do I connect with an audience in person?” The only difference is that a screen sits between you and the people you are speaking to. Rather than seeing it as a barrier, I like to remember that if our eyes are windows to our souls, then a screen is a window into someone’s world. We can now take a peek into the home lives of our colleagues, employers, and employees. If you are willing to allow it this is a great way to connect on a deeper personal and professional level.

PowerPoint Data Rules or Conditional Formatting with DataPoint

October 30, 2020

Real-time data displayed on your slide’s screen is informative to look at, and not too difficult to achieve. Microsoft PowerPoint is certainly the most widely-used tool to create presentation slides. When combined with the DataPoint add-in from PresentationPoint, you can bring real-time data to your slides or slideshows. You can easily connect a text box, chart, or table to your factory production figures or KPI’s (key performance indicator), and have it updated at regular intervals–every 200 milliseconds, or every minute, depending on your needs.
