- [Instructor] Hello and welcome back to Presentation Tips Weekly. This week we're going to take a look at using Presenter Coach in PowerPoint for the Web. Now Presenter Coach, think of that as actually somebody sitting with you as you're practicing your presentations, they're listening for your pacing. They're making sure that you're not reading from your slides. They're making sure that you have a variance of tone. Even if you're dropping a curse word in there, some of us are a little bit loose with our speech and maybe we were dropping a couple of little colorful bits of speech in there. Even inclusive speech. It's really listening to make sure that you are doing a great job. And if you're doing a great job it's going to let you know you're doing a great job as well. So this is only in PowerPoint for the Web. And the reason that is is what I understand is the PowerPoint team, when they release a new feature they will drop it in the web version first. So if you're using PowerPoint for the Web you're basically getting the latest build, all the new good stuff is in PowerPoint for the Web. So that's what I understand. So there's a couple of ways that we can enable Presenter Coach and the easiest way to do it it's just to go up here to View and then you see Rehearse with Coach is here. But you can also just go down here to Slideshow how you normally would do it down here at the bottom right, click Slideshow, and then there's a little icon down here right here. And if you click that you'll get the same thing. So right here, you get a little window that's showing that Presenter Coach is about to be engaged and it's letting you know that you're going to get live feedback. And at the end, you're going to get a little summary that's basically showing how well or how poorly you did. So let's go ahead and start. And again, Show real-time feedback is down here. If that's going to mess you up while you're rehearsing, 'cause you're going to get these little sounds, take that off. But I like to leave it on to kind of see what I'm doing as I'm speaking to know what I'm doing. So you'll hear me, I'm going to go ahead and practice some of these things, you'll hear me kind of talk to you and all that good stuff. So you'll see. So let's go ahead and start rehearsing. All right, so today we're going to talk about using Presenter Coach in PowerPoint for the Web. Now, I think that's really important for us to all know how to do that, especially when we want to talk about how XYZ Bikes will succeed in 2021. So the first thing I want to talk about, and I'm going to talk verbatim about that to see what it does, but let's say the XYZ Bikes will meet all expectations in Q4 by fulfilling its obligations with overseas distribution, assembly, and online sales. So, and I see, don't want to read our slides. All right, so the next thing we want to talk about is launching these new products at the roadmap event in Barcelona, Spain, and that's going to be in June. So I want you to remember that's coming up. Okay, the next thing I want to talk about is, hey, our new products. I mean, we have an exciting array of products. We have our floating unicycle our underwater quad cycle, our laser balance bike, and even the invisible bike jacket that everybody's waiting for, everybody's waiting. All right, so the next slide I'm going to talk in a little bit more of a monotone voice. So I want to talk about the areas to improve on, there's three of them. I want to talk about volume. I'm going to talk a little bit slower too. We ultimately need to sell more bikes, period. We're hoping to increase that production by 25 to 30% next quarter. We have lots of new products. We've been really trying to introduce those new products in 2021. And we've been known for our ingenuity, but not performance. It's time we're known for how well our products perform. And lastly, to bring it home, we're going to talk about how to succeed in 2021. We've got to meet our expectations. We've got to talk about these new products. And lastly, we've got to talk about these new products. Okay, so that's it, I want you to leave here knowing that you're awesome. So, all right, let's stop that. Let's see, let's see what we got here. So you're going to stop, I'm going to Escape, and then we're going to get a little report here, so let's see what we get. All right, so look, we got to, it tells how long we spent, it tells how many slides we've rehearsed on. Look, our pacing is perfect. It's just right, so we didn't talk too fast, we didn't talk too slow, even though I deliberately tried to talk slow in one part. You can see that over here our Originality. It's these two slides I read verbatim. So it's letting me know, Hey, next time you rehearse these, make sure that you're a little bit more, you're not reading. OK, here's our Pace. I really tried to slow down at the end there and you see it still said I was doing a decent job, so I'm kind of surprised about that. But you see our pacing was really good here and then it slowed down at the end. Our Pitch, now you notice I really had a draggy pitch at the end. So I started out kind of upbeat and down here I let my energy dip and you can see it really dipped here. So it did keep track of that. You could also see Sensitive Phrasing. Hey, no sensitive phrases found. I used inclusive speech, that's great. And this is something I'm guilty of. If you listen to my weekly courses, you know that I say you know and I mean a lot. So this is something that I need to work on and this is a great way of finding out the things that I'm doing wrong, I need to improve on. So hopefully you learned a lot about Presenter Coach and I definitely want you to go ahead and try this out. It's only going to help you, even if you're not a professional speaker, even if you're just presenting one time, try this out. This is really a great way to have somebody listen to you and let you know how you're doing when you present. So I hope to see you next time with more Presentation Tips Weekly.
