Video round-tripping in PowerPoint is like the movie inception, where we figure out everything is a dream, inside of a dream, that is possibly inside of another dream… this is creating content in PowerPoint, that is exported to video, and then that video become part of the PowerPoint content, or a slide with a video of PowerPoint content with other PowerPoint content. It is crazy stuff you can do with PowerPoint, and Troy, Sandy and Nolan have a great design studio conversation all about it!
After talking about studio projects and presentation industry news, Troy and Nolan head out the door while Sandra Johnson, Nancy Duarte, and Lori Chollar have an amazing time talking about being Women Owned Businesses in the design industry – a conversation not to miss!
PowerPoint Sections, first introduced in PowerPoint 2010 are still a hidden feature to many. Troy, Nolan and Sandy spend a whole episode to talking about this great, and underutilized feature.

PowerPoint templates are a key, and fundamental, feature of PowerPoint. We have all seen “templates” that are far from a true, functional and helpful PowerPoint template. Troy, Nolan and Sandy are joined by two industry experts in PowerPoint template development who literally wrote the book on PowerPoint templates, Echo Swinford and Julie Terberg.
PowerPoint Templates have lots of setup, design, distribution and end-use considerations. For this episode we have a virtual conversation with a number of presentation design experts volunteering their expertise and recommendations on everything PowerPoint templates.

It is a fantastic conversation, enjoy!
Color is a major part of presentation design. How a presentation designer goes about using color, both for design and the technical how-to within PowerPoint, have a wide variety approaches.

The Presentation Podcast continues the PowerPoint add-in conversation from the perspective of the add-in developers themselves. With 3 amazing guests providing their insights and knowledge; Steve Rindsberg of PPTools, Gil Segal of ToolsToo, and Jamie Garroch of YouPresent. This will be part 1 in this conversation, look for part 2 in the near future. The insights and information from these add-in developers is definitely worth a listen, and probably a re-listen to take notes on everything!
Add-ins, third party apps that make design time faster by automating tasks and enabling PowerPoint to do more than it is capable of are something every professional presentation designer should take advantage of. Troy, Nolan, and Sandy talk about add-ins they use and see others using.
We have two amazing things to share about this episode. First, this is the 50th Presentation Podcast episode! Second, we celebrate our 50th anniversary with a presentation and PowerPoint conversation at the Microsoft campus with over a dozen Microsoft PowerPoint MVPs!
