      PowerPoint Plus

      Remember: PowerPoint is a presentation tool.  A visual.  Done well, a PPT will help the audience remember key ideas, facts, and information.

      Be brave....use less text and more visuals.

      • Or a Voki
      • An image, or two, or three
      • A graph or a chart
