In Praise of Powerpoint – Interesting Breakfast

In Praise of Powerpoint – Interesting Breakfast

 

 

Paul used his Interesting Breakfast slot to extol the virtues of PowerPoint. If you think PowerPoint has had its day – think again.

Animations for PPT

Paul started by sharing some of the exciting features found in the latest version of PowerPoint. Features such as Morph Transitions bring a level of movement and transition that was previously the preserve of professional animators.

Using Widescreen in Presentations

People imagine that wide-screen content has to be created in a different programme – Paul showed that in fact PowerPoint is perfect for non-traditional screen formats.

Having stepped through the process for creating wide-screen content using PowerPoint, Paul shared five benefits of going wide:

  1. Gets the audience closer to the action by opening up more landscape room layouts
  2. Encourages brain-friendly content with large powerful graphics
  3. Communicates a modern, tech savvy business
  4. Provides a more immersive experience
  5. Allows space for multiple feeds within a single ‘canvas’ – graphics / live camera / live data

As more venues install wide screens, the ability to create affordable, visually stunning, graphics will become vital, and PowerPoint provides the ideal solution.
