Five Best PowerPoint Add-ins for Everyday Use

November 1, 2021

There are literally hundreds of PowerPoint add-ins out there, and they all plug into PowerPoint and ensure that you can do anything from inserting multiple pictures on your slide to sharing your slide content online. Others repurpose your slides so that your content can be reused in so many other ways. Of course, if I were to describe what PowerPoint add-ins can do, I would run out of pages to write and you would have no time to read the long post! So, let’s look at add-ins that people tend to use every time they create slides. Yes, these are add-ins that you cannot live without and you cannot imagine using PowerPoint without them plugged in.

The Rules of Netiquette and How To Use Them Both To Communicate Clearly And Save Time

October 22, 2021

The 2020s continue to invent new words to make sense of the new world we live in, including our use of the internet. One such term is netiquette. Netiquette has had its etymological evolution from the word etiquette. Whilst etiquette is focused on the conduct and behavior observed in social life, netiquette refers to this aspect of governance from the perspective of the Internet. I have learned and experienced many things in my time as a technology executive and as a Toastmaster. As an executive, I have the latest tools and technologies at my fingertips (e.g. “The What”). Yet, as a Toastmaster, I have built foundations of communication, public speaking, and leadership (i.e. “The Why and How”). My aim is to share some of the key tips, tricks, and lessons on netiquette through each lens.
