Getting your presentation design off to the right start is essential. PowerPoint templates and masters are the underlying force that ties all your slides together, but so often they are ignored and forgotten. Having a consistent, branded PowerPoint template will ensure that all your presentations look the part from the beginning. But templates within PowerPoint can be an easy stumbling block for the uninitiated. In this masterclass we look at how to create a PowerPoint template from scratch, teaching you how to set the template masters, the color scheme, layout options, fonts, and animation effects. Moving through the session, we'll show you exactly how to work in PowerPoint to achieve a consistent, professional presentation template, so that you can become a true PowerPoint Jedi with unmatched skill and speed.
