Really, Really BIG PowerPoint (Screen Size, Not File Size)!

40′ tall and 200′ wide, no problem for PowerPoint – if you know how!

PowerPoint is behind a lot of multi-screen, large screen multimedia productions – it’s just bigger and more visual than everyone expects a “PowerPoint” to look like. Many people are surprised by the app behind these amazing shows – and that’s okay for TLC Creative Services, because we specialize in large screen projects with PowerPoint.

President and co-founder of TLC Creative joins the Presentation Ideas Conference and shares examples of some dynamic presentation design projects, technical how-to information for setting up PowerPoint and design tips for larger than life presentation screens.

The design studio is based in the San Diego, California region and has an in-house design team that focuses on all aspects of presentation design, with a special expertise in large-scale “Hollywood” style uses of PowerPoint.

Troy is an awarded (since 2004) Microsoft MVP for PowerPoint, 1 of 16 in North America.  His PowerPoint focused blog, www.ThePowerPointBlog.com has been posting tips, tricks and examples since 2006, and the www.ThePresentationPodcast has been going since 2016 for presentation focused podcast conversations.

Best Practices on How to Transition to Online Presenting

Oh, no – I have to present online! What do I do?

With the evolution of technology and limited time, many organizations are using online conferencing tools to deliver training, thought-leadership, and knowledge to their target audiences.  The challenge many face is how to transition their speakers to be effective online presenters. In this webinar, you will learn how to create presentations that make an impact with your audience and what best practices you can employ to engage them and keep them interested throughout your presentation as you transition from being in-person to online.  Discover the power of selecting the right tool to present, the impact of the right visual imagery, planning for the good and the bad, and how to keep the conversation moving with an audience you cannot see.

In this webinar, we will share a use case featuring the transition of a major employee assistance company from in-person training to a robust catalog of webinars in less than a year.  We will also compare the pros and cons of several online conferencing platforms, so you can decide which one fits your needs.  Attendees will also get several online presentation tools and templates that they can customize for their own presentation delivery.
