March 10th, 2020 Lunch & Learn

Topic: Coll New PowerPoint Functions in Office 365 that will Leave You Speechless

Richard Goring will return as our Guest Speaker for the March 2020  Lunch & Learn.

PowerPoint has a reputation for being boring, and its functions really haven’t changed since flint was at the cutting edge of cutting edges, but things have been really different since Office 365 came along. Now, there are new tools added every few weeks, and there are tremendous gains to be had from a whole host of functions. Sadly, they’re all too often hidden away. In this session, you’ll see all the amazing things you can now do with PowerPoint to bring your presentations, proposals, and other content to life, by telling visual stories in an engaging and interactive way.

See how you can access graphics seamlessly, add live heatmaps and all sorts of new charts, incorporate 3D models, capture video and screen recording, convert sketches into slides, generate live subtitles as you talk, and of course, use the terrific new Morph transition to do completely astounding things so easily that you’ll be amazed you ever tried to live without it.

It’s staggering how much has changed recently, and the pace of the updates that are being made. If you gave up on PowerPoint long ago, now’s the time to try again. If you’re forced into using it, now’s the time to rejoice that you’re blessed with time to use PowerPoint. No, really. It’s amazing what you’ll be able to achieve.
