A good presentation is an integral part of any successful speech, coursework, or research that catches the audience’s attention. Also, an outstanding PowerPoint presentation is a prerequisite for a high score since it allows you to demonstrate both knowledge and different useful skills.

It is a fact that appearance is the initial point that instantly grabs attention. So, no matter how brilliant your research and data are, having a gloomy design with plain text will hardly make the audience curious.

You may opt for asking a PowerPoint presentation writing service to complete your presentation or manage to deliver it on your own. But using these seven mighty hacks, you will definitely end up with a winning presentation and navigate it like a pro.

Presentation Management: The New Strategy for Enterprise ContentThis post is part of a series on Presentation Management, and is the seventh post in this series.

In the last post, we looked at how Presentation Management empowers presenters.

This set of serialized posts is based on original content, the Presentation Management: The New Strategy for Enterprise Content book, authored by AlexAnndra Ontra and James Ontra.

In a meeting room at ABC National Television Sales in 2006—before the iPhone, before cheap thumb drives, before easy cloud storage—we learned a hard lesson about PowerPoint presentations and the pace of technological change. That lesson started us on our journey to develop the concept of enterprise presentation management.

We are a brother-sister team, and we have been consulting with enterprise clients, providing presentation technology and creative services for over 20 years.

Whether you are a student, a freelancer, or a businessman, a laptop is a staple device that should be at your disposal. Given its portable and compact features, it helps in sustaining your productivity throughout the day.

However, finding a laptop that meets your needs at work, school, and home can sometimes get confusing and time-consuming.

If you’re a beginner and contemplating whether or not you should make that purchase, simplify your decision-making process with these laptop buying tips:

Identify the Purpose

Before making a purchase, it’s essential that you genuinely understand why you need a laptop. Take note that laptops, in general, can be quite expensive. Although many brands offer a wide range of affordable models, its usability doesn’t always match your needs.

  • For example, if you’re specifically eyeing a laptop for editing, then explore options that will target that purpose. A good starting point would be to read tech blogs from everyday experts who write reviews on specific laptop models.
  • If you’re a student or a teacher who uses a laptop primarily for powerful PowerPoint presentation purposes, then it would pay to have additional insights on laptops that are compatible with any projector system.

Yesterday I did a rush cleanup job on a nasty deck of slides for a client, and today, I got a thank you email that said:

There is one thing I must ask you. How do you get your tables to format with such a light design (the lines of the table)? I have tried to figure out how to do this but usually end up picking one from the design menu in the tool bar because I can’t reformat the colors of the actual table lines.

So this is what I do to get the light-colored lines:
