Dear Readers,

Out-of-the-box thinking leads to innovation and pushing the limits of both technology and platforms like PowerPoint, Prezi and others. 

This community is full of talented presentation experts who have developed interesting apps or ways to do things like creating a clickable table of contents or developing a free, cool PowerPoint app - Neo/ Ipsum– which enables you to create your own version of Lorem Ipsum including the classic version, comics, sports, news and more. Try it. Download Neo/ Ipsum for free.

Our webinar with SmartStorming Authors Keith Harmeyer and Mitchell Rigie was fun and interactive.  We loved all the wonderful interaction during the Idea Sprint exercise.  If you missed it or want to see it again, click here.

Infographics are visual graphical representations of data and information.  They make a powerful statement.  Do you know  how to create one in PowerPoint?  Join us on Wednesday, March 16th at 11 am PT/ 2 pm ET for a how-to webinar with graphics guru, Mike Parkinson.  He will show us how to make them fast – no design experience required. You will improve the quality and effectiveness of your presentations by adding powerful infographics.

Thank you for your emails and suggestions. I am looking for a few good story ideas and talented writers. Is that you?  Just email me so we can set up time to connect. I am enjoying getting to know our PresentationXpert community.
