Put the Power Back in Your PowerPoint

PowerPoint was first released in 1987. Over the years, it has become an incredibly powerful tool for both presentations and course prototypes. However, many users learn the basics and often don’t discover many of the lesser known, but very useful functions. This 60-minute webinar will open the doors to tricks and tips that can dramatically decrease development time and increase overall quality.

You'll learn how to:

  1. Use the keyboard to work much faster and more efficiently
  2. Replace an image in 5 seconds
  3. Crop and resize multiple photos at once
  4. Set default shape styles
  5. Create custom interactions using triggers
  6. Easily identify objects on crowded slides using the Selection Pane
  7. Convert bullets to graphics in seconds
  8. Break SmartArt to create custom graphics

At the end of the presentation, you’ll also learn where you can find incredible free resources and training with even more PowerPoint tips and tricks.
