Meetings, instruction, training, pitches; these are all a part of our daily lives.
We are often called upon to deliver presentations with little notice, at multiple venues, and with varying requirements. And, some of these presentations include sensitive information that needs to be guarded.
Given all the variables, it may seem an overwhelming task to deliver your content, on time, to all audiences, and to only those who need to see it. Oh, and by the way, you need to make it interesting, informative, and memorable.
So, how do you do it? Without the help of a robust set of tools, it would be nearly impossible. But, PowerPointÂ® 2013 provides you with a variety of such tools that can help you deliver content in nearly any situation, while saving time and effort.
By taking advantage of these tools, you will be creating presentations that not only stand out from the crowd, but also don't consume all of your available time.
Upon completing this course, you will be able to customize the PowerPoint application, and effectively create, collaborate on, secure, and distribute complex multimedia presentations for a variety of situations.

Customize design templates.
Add SmartArt to a presentation.
