Join David Diskin for an in-depth discussion in this video Understanding the importance of design, part of PowerPoint Tips and Tricks for Business Presentations.
In this chapter, I will discuss how to create a great looking presentation…with minimal effort.…I will show you how to match your color palettes, keep your slides consistent,…use great photos, make your data meaningful, and we'll throw in some diagrams.…We are going to do everything from within PowerPoint, which means we won't…need the assistance of a graphic designer or use any professional graphics applications.…Let's start by adjusting what PowerPoint calls the page size.…We need to decide if the audience will see this on a standard or a…widescreen display.…
