PowerPoint is the de facto presentation standard. Over 35 million PPT presentations are made every day by an estimated 500 million users worldwide. It was developed at a Silicon Valley startup in the mid-1980s. PowerPoint was first released for the Macintosh computer in 1987. Microsoft bought it for $14M three months after its initial launch and was their first significant acquisition. PPT became a component of the Office suite in 1989 for Macintosh and in 1990 for Windows.
My Software Tutor has developed a three-pronged blueprint for your PowerPoint success:
- Learn the software – integrate text, images, shapes, SmartArt, charts, tables, audio, and video when and where it is appropriate.
- Construct an effective narrative – develop your story so others “get it” in the manner you’re intending it to land.
- Deliver a compelling presentation – keep people interested & engaged in today’s short-attention world
My Software Tutor offers a three-level suite of Zoom-based, live instructor courses for PPT scheduled on various days and times. A single level is typically completed within the same week.
