Review: PowerPoint 2010 Bible

PowerPoint Tips

I received a free copy of PowerPoint 2010 Bible by Faithe Wempen. PowerPoint 2010 Bible is indeed very complete. It’s published by Wiley and is almost 800 pages. You think that’s a lot? I write the AutoCAD & AutoCAD LT Bible , and it’s almost 1300 pages! The point is, Wiley’s Bible series is meant to be very complete and the books are long. Generally, they’re reference books, not tutorials.

Remove an image background in PowerPoint 2010

PowerPoint Tips

One of the new features of PowerPoint 2010 is the ability to remove the background of an image. PowerPoint 2010 lets you specify which parts of the image you want to keep or discard. You can download a 60-day trial of Office 2010. This is different from making one color in the background transparent, which you can do in earlier versions. (I I describe that process in a tip, “ Cool contour shadows.&# ).

Where in the World is Akio Toyoda?

Matt Eventoff

One headline that a company in crisis could certainly live without is “ Inside Toyota, Executives Trade Blame Over Debacle “ — this morning’s headline in the Wall Street Journal. This comes on the heels of a controversy surrounding the Lexus GX460 — suspension of the sale of the vehicle following Consumer Reports issuing a rare “Do Not Buy&# warning. While the news doesn’t get better for Toyota, their handling of the Lexus crisis did.

Legendary speechwriter Ted Sorensen passed away on Sunday. Of the many obituaries none is more insightful than this appreciation by American University speechwriting teacher Bob Lehrman who concludes: He won’t sign our books.

The one thing the best presenters at SXSW 2010 have in common

Speaking about Presenting

SXSW is a mega conference/festival for geeks in Austin, Texas, United States. Mega means over 10,000 attendees. I came here to see what’s happening at the geek edge of presenting. To observe the interface between presenting and technology. But what has been most in my face is that the best presenters I saw care! They don’t care about themselves – they care about their audience, and they care passionately. I’ll talk about each of these three best sessions. Chris Brogan and Julien Smith.

2010 World Series: Speaking Lessons from the Pinch-Hitters

DeFinis Communications

I’m thrilled that one Bay Area team is in the World Series this year, but as many of you know, I’m a fan of the team on the other side of the bay—the Oakland A’s. I’m undecided about who I’ll root for in this year’s match up, although that’s hard to admit in public around here. Giants fever has hit every corner of Northern California and it’s hard to quell.

Political Debates 2010 – R, D or Tea?

Matt Eventoff
