Taking Advantage of Artificial Intelligence with PowerPoint O365
Few people realize that AI is also a part of their PowerPoint O365 tool. In this session we will see 3 features based on Microsoft’s Intelligent Services:
- Design Ideas, to help you lay out images, bullets and timelines.
- Translator, the translation tool that helps you translate text strings or whole presentations.
- Live Captions, the feature that helps you create more accessible content for the visually impaired or make your content available in a second language “live”.
About Chantal Bossé

Through her unusual career path – from biochemist to creating CHABOS in 2004 to share her passion for visual communications – she understood how communications were important at all levels of our lives.

Be Memorable and Close More Sales with Story
What’s the use of great teaching points if your audience never remembers it or buys what you’re selling? Be the presentation that everyone remembers and talks about, plus close more sales!
Attendees will walk away with the tools to use storytelling in their presentation so that their audience stays engaged. They’ll learn the S.T.A.G.E. method of presenting story in person or online. They will also learn how to transition from storytelling easily into their offer so that it is the logical next step and feels good instead of sleezy and awkward.

7 Ways To Create Highly Versatile Non Linear Presentations
So you learned PowerPoint so well you could do it backwards? Well why does every presentation start at the beginning and slog inexorably forwards one slide at a time towards the end?
In this webinar you’ll discover how to create presentations which are highly versatile, able to be adapted on the fly in response to your audience’s needs. By creating presentations which give you full control over the way your information is packaged and delivered you’ll be able to ensure that every presentation is slick, relevant, targeted and professional. Create presentations that work more like social media feeds, adapted to the needs and interests of your audience, rather than grey handbooks meant for slogging through in a tired old way. Linear presentations are so 20th century. Learn how to present, rather than show, how to deliver rather than tell.

Mind-blowing PowerPoint. No, Really!
Why are most presentations so bad? Truly terrible? They’re too wordy, text-based, and generally dull. They don’t tell stories that engage, excite, or inspire. And they generally do little to actually help people learn. They are linear and non-responsive, with no interaction. Pretty much everything you know doesn’t work to convey information effectively. Few people enjoy creating, delivering, or watching PowerPoint presentations, so let’s change that.
This session is packed full of techniques to create mind-blowing presentations. Want to know how to create visual slides? Manipulate images? Master animations? Make it interactive? And produce presentations that will astound your audience? Then come along for a masterclass in ways to capture your audience’s attention and help them learn.
This is a highly practical session in which we’ll work together on creating half a dozen amazing slides that work effectively, and look at how to use those skills on many other slides when you’re developing your own presentations. And, because it’s all live in a single session, you can see just how quick it is to create compelling visual presentation content – so there’s no excuse for bullet point slides! So don your thinking caps, get ready to critique some dreadful ‘before’ slides and take part in transforming them into truly mind-blowing presentations that will energize your audience and make your next training course the best ever.

Working with Shapes in PowerPoint
Geetesh Bajaj looks at why shapes are the building blocks in PowerPoint. Shapes are everywhere, and there are many ways in which you can insert them, duplicate them, resize and rotate them, and even reuse them. But even better, did you know that what applies to shapes is valid for almost any other slide object in PowerPoint. Thus, you can use what you learn to create better presentations, faster!
Here are some ideas that you will learn about:
- Inserting shapes
- Duplicating shapes
- Resizing shapes
- Rotating shapes
- Sticky shapes
- Shapes with diamonds
- Changing shapes

Generating Reports Using PowerPoint
When you think of business reports, you probably think of Microsoft Excel or Microsoft Word, not PowerPoint. If so, you are missing a great opportunity!

Creating KPI Dashboards in PowerPoint
You use dashboards every day you drive your car. Your car dashboard monitors speed, fuel, engine temperature and other key performace indicators (KPIs). Pilots use much more in-depth dashboards to fly complex air craft.
But what about your business? Or your factory floor or manufacturing facility? What if you could have a dashboard to show how your business was running or how your manufacturing was proceeding? This is easy to do with PowerPoint.
In this presentation, Garland will show you how to create your own KPI (Key Performance Indicator) dashboard in PowerPoint to monitor your KPIs in real-time.
