Creating visual aids that really work: Designing effective slides using PowerPoint

Pivotal Public Speaking

Used unwisely, PowerPoint becomes a distraction that upstages the presenter and buries the message. PowerPoint incorporates a wide variety of tools for selecting colors, fonts, formats and styles. PowerPoint also lets you create your own graphics and tailor the data to meet your own special needs. Used wisely, PowerPoint® and similar programs can be an effective tool to help audiences remember your message, while allowing you to prove, reinforce, and support your claims.
