Making PowerPoint Work For You

Jim Spellos, President, Meeting-U


In order to get your message across to your audience, PowerPoint is the de facto tool to visually support your communication. Yet many people, including professional speakers, misuse the tool and use it ineffectively.


This session will showcase how to use many common elements (including animation and transition) most effectively as well as showing little known and highly-effective PowerPoint tricks and tools to ensure that your presentations have the greatest impact on your clients.
