WOW! An amazing overview of graphics and editing for anyone who puts together PowerPoints or any other presentation materials–worth a good overview.
Top Four Tips
1. “If you want to be a great presenter, you must think like a designer.”
2. Follow the 10:20:30 Principle–no more than 10 slides or 20 minutes, and no font smaller than 30 point.
3. Create unity through a presentation template for your organization–with editable title, informational, transition, quote and closing slides.
4. GoogleDocs offers hundreds of free, downloadable files to save and use as slide background.
