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!
Beauty is subjective, as is slide design, all of which Troy, Nolan, Sandy and this week’s guest, Mitch Grasso, have strong opinions on. As founder of SlideRocket (acquired by VMware in 2011) and now Beautiful.ai (an online presentation design app that launched February 6, 2018), Mitch adds great insights into presentation design. Like TV shows that use a news headline for an episode storyline, we take Mitch’s new company name, and its mission, as our conversation topic and discuss what makes a beautiful presentation.
There is an art to design project feedback, and often the success or failure of a project rests entirely on being able to give, and receive, feedback effectively. On this episode, Troy, Nolan, and Sandy focus on design feedback – for both the client and the designer.
Support for 3D model file formats is a new option for PowerPoint. 3D models and 3D Perspective design are different. In this Presentation Podcast conversation, Troy, Nolan and Sandy talk about using 3D Models as PowerPoint slide content and if 3D Models are a novelty, a fad, or a design trend?
The primary purpose of presentation software is to support a presenter. Presenters need to be aware of what things can go wrong, know what to check before presenting, and prevent many potential issues before they become an issue. Sandy, Nolan and Troy are presenters, they work with presenters every week, and have experienced many presentation technical issues, this podcast offers a compilation of things every presenter should check before presenting.

Presenter Notes: what are they, are they needed, what is the best way to create them, where is the best place to create them? So many questions for such a useful presentation tool. Yes, there are less helpful ways of creating, formatting and using Presenter Notes. No, there is no perfect way to create, format or use Presenter Notes. Troy, Nolan and Sandy share their notes about using Presenter Notes.
Life, and being a professional, is a matter of learning from experiences – and sometimes those experiences are mistakes. Join in on a design studio conversation full of business mistakes seen, been a part of, or possibly created.
