It has been some time since it was just a conversation with Troy, Nolan and Sandy. October 2019 had 5 Tuesdays, our last conversation was with a large group at the Presentation Summit and before that was a few guest conversations. So, listen in to us catch up and focus on the many PowerPoint and presentation updates that have been highlights over the past 2 months!
Everyone needs software, hardware, and tools to make their company, or department, run. Troy, Nolan and Sandy list all they use to run their presentation design studios.
We live in an animated world, and animated slide content is the norm. Join Troy, Nolan and Sandy as they talk about PowerPoint animation, PowerPoint as a motion graphics design tool, tips on animation, and our Do’s and Don’ts of animation.
Continuing our “Consequences of Good Design” conversation, now focused on the what makes a “Good PowerPoint template” (and those things that make a bad PowerPoint template).
Everything has consequences, presentation design included. Often the “death by PowerPoint” mantra is more about bad information flow – created in any program – and it is a consequence of bad presentation design. Nolan, Sandy talk spend some time talking about current projects, recapping the Presentation Summit experience and then dive into a conversation about The Consequences of Good Presentation Design from 3 vantage points; Designer to Client, Designer to Designer, and of course, Client to Audience.
A round table discussion with a dozen PowerPoint MVPs at the 2019 Microsoft MVP Summit talking about all things PowerPoint. Join the fun!
Should you embed or link media in PowerPoint presentations? Excel data, videos, audio and images are all options to embed within the presentation file, or link to external files. Troy, Sandy and Nolan discuss the merits of each option, cover many of the technical considerations and provide some great tips on whether to link or embed content.
Troy, Nolan and Sandy are joined by Andy Goodman, a sought out expert on storytelling, communications and presentation in the world of non-profits, NGOs and foundations. We talk about his history and focus on his book Why Bad Presentations Happen to Good Causes for a fantastic hour of amazing presentation philosophy and talk about what to do – and what not to do – for presentations.
Join Troy, Nolan and Sandy as they talk about revisions for a project. Are they included in the project scope, are revisions billable beyond the project scope, what is a revision, how many revisions are included in a project agreement, is there a point of too many revisions and how do revisions impact the project invoice?
Every new presentation design project begins with gathering details – the Presentation Design Brief. Troy, Sandra and Nolan talk about what format these each use for their Design Briefs, along with what information is captured for presentation makeover projects.
