I hope you have enjoyed what I consider to be some of the best practices of Microsoft PowerPoint and public speaking. I will leave you with a few quick closing tips. First, have fun. From the moment you open PowerPoint to when the last audience member leaves the room, make sure you're enjoying every second. Presenting to others can be a great experience, especially when you're helping them with something you're passionate about. My second tip is to frequently check the Microsoft Online PowerPoint website. Here you will find free templates, stock photos and video, and all kinds of how-to articles and tips from other experts.
And third, you might spend some time watching my other PowerPoint courses in the lynda.com Online Training Library. Those courses cover features in PowerPoint not covered in this course. I would like to thank you for taking the time to watch these videos and feel free to direct any feedback to me personally at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you!
