    Section 2: Good practices & neccesary knowledge
    05:53

    Try to minimize the amount of text on a presentation - always.

    PowerPoint 2013 has great option to use animations, graphics and other visual oriented items inside a powerpoint presentation so you don't always have to add much text.

    03:07

    In this lesson I am going to explain how to smart use the presenter view to read text directly from Your screen, when the viewer sees only the slide on the presentation screen. Other usefull tips as making your presentation more engaging and interactive with a laser pointer or zooming-in and out of it are also explained. Valuable PowerPoint 2013 lessons!

    06:08

    You know this website but You might not visit it too often. If you want to present like a boss start to gain inspiration from the bosses, simple right ? Do what's possible with powerpoint and konw your limits by taking a look at other presentations.

    03:47

    In this lesson I want to show you how a professional powerpoint presentation can be made with use of vector files!

    As you see this creates a great opportunity for use to leverage all possible tools of powerpoint to master the software.

    03:54

    In this lesson I want to address the possible font choices you may make and if you do need to use custom fonts.

    Fonts were always important in everything possible and the same goes for presetations in powerpint.

    03:57

    After you have finished the presentation, what coloristic and overall feeling would you like to achieve...do you know that ? We can either define colors inside of powerpoint or search colors and pick them out right form around the web.

    Use those resources and tools to work even easier and quicker in powerpoint 2013 and all previous versions.

    3 questions

    Please fill out this simple 3 questions quiz to ensure that you are ready to enter the design section!

    Section 3: Design a 14-slide presentation!
    02:39

    Let me tell you about the basics on how we will approach the creation - process of this section and get you a bit fired up about for the upcomming lessons! :) Before we get to the point that we are PowerPoint ninjas and start to rock all presentations out of the socks we need to get the right mindset!

    04:41

    In this lecture we will create the first slide of our How To Prepare awesome PowerPoint 2013 presentations course by following me as I create it along with You! The first slide will be the TITLE of the presentation we want to quickly create and animate afterwards. A title of a powerpoint presentation can make or break it, like any introducitonary sequence would, no matter what type of content you are throwing at Your audience.

    07:43

    In this lesson of our PowerPoint 2013 course we will address the "About Us" page slide. We will use an image to prepare a good looking animated slide and start to build our presentation.

    03:25

    Since the first few slides are most intensive and require the most work on our side I divided it into 2 lessons to let you take a break while learning! We want to utilize all the best and most usefull powerpoint features in this slide so we are not holding back on animations!

    06:15

    In this lecture we prepare a slide showcasing 6 features of our brand, company or simply any device, topic or thing you might present about in a nice, colorable and clean style. Powerpoint 2013 allows us to create slides like that with help of nice icons.

    05:13

    A good slide is no good until he is proper animated! Let's make everything look & work smoothly by adding nice animations! As you already saw in the previous lesson it is super easy to edit and add animations in powerpoint presentations.

    06:07

    In this lesson we are creating a 4 steps process flow slide usable in any type of presentation, wether it's about gaming, a business presentation, a corporate style presentation or any other type of data that may be shown in a step-by-step process. This can be one of the most usefull slides in a powerpoint presentation because you can deliver any message in a ordered and fashionable manner.

    05:11

    A few PowerPoint 2010/2013 tricks allow us to create amazing timeline slides, which can present any data that is changing over time, days, months, years in an organized manner. This trend goes on in 2015 and it will most probably continue to be considered a masterpiece of usefullness in presentations. We all have to show and present timelined scnenarios wether it's our career development on a resumee or simply the path of development of a company.

    05:08

    By smart usage of the PowerPoint animations we can achieve an interesting effect as if the timeline slides would be connected together, really awesome knowledge to grab from here! PPT will be so happy we used that :)

    07:52

    Our Vector placing skills will finally come to use! With this lesson I want to teach you how to use vector World Map images inside of PowerPoint to present global statistics or data in a very clear & transparent way. Normally people do not use vectors on powerpoint presentations which is the one most important factor why YOU should! Be creative, innovative and original.

    07:17

    The same things we used for a world map can be grabbed, swapped and adjusted to grab and visualize local or domestic data of any country we would like.

    06:55

    After the design I believe we deserve a break! Let me show you some techniques how to prepare a proper "Pause break" slide to be consistend with our color scheme and usefull for the entire presentation. Who doesn't need a break from presenting? You can design a simple and soothing powerpoint slide and use it as a "take 5" placeholder.

    08:13

    PowerPoint is all about visualizing data. Graphs can be one of the most effective ways of presenting complex and important values in a clear and informative way. In this lesson we will address how to utilize the basic graph options build into the program to prepare good looking and easy readable informations.

    As one student already said some of the most important and interesting informations are to find in this particular lecture about powerpoint graphs.

    02:07

    PowerPoint is all about visualizing data. Graphs can be one of the most effective ways of presenting complex and important values in a clear and informative way. In this lesson we are continuing to explan various possibilities of graph usage in Powerpoint 2010 / 2013.

    03:51

    It's time to place our company on the map! Take a screenshot form Google Maps and use it as the basis of our contact page slide. Use powerpoints objects to distinguish certain elements of possibilities to contact you after the presentation.

    01:32

    It is fair, polite, nice and overall a good practice to list all the resources, tools and informations you have gathered and properly credit the authors for their contribution and making the work you do easier. Powerpoint 2013 slide including different sources we used to gather information for this presentation.

    03:22

    Everything good comes to and end...but this doesn't mean we can't end it with a bang! Even our powerpoint presentation has to get some closure around and we want to address this topic right now. We earned it !

    3 questions

    Adding a video in the background can give a really unique touch & feel to a powerpoint presentation. But how to manage that, does powerpoint allow us to insert videos on slides that will play during we speak? Let's find out in that tutorial!

    03:34

    You can structurize Your presentation before you design it - this WILL save You time! Powerpoint has a few build-in tools to manage the pace and way we sort our presentation into pieces.

    01:43

    The basic PowerPoint 2007,2010, 2013 templates look pretty good but people have seen them so many times that they don't appear professional anymore!

    Section 7: Conclusion
    02:11

    Let's watch what we have created! I hope even Bill Gates would be proud of the powerpoint presentation we were able to sew and produce together, it was a lot of work but also fun along the way. Now watch it as a whole complete sequence.

    Instructor Biography

    Andrzej Pach, Engaged and Passionate PowerPoint & After Effects instructor

    Hi! My name is Andrzej Pach, more known as "Nigel" and I spend my time with graphic design, motion & animaiton, typography, video editing and online teaching on a daily basis. The majority of my work is done in Adobe After Effects & Microsoft PowerPoint 2013 / 2016 - naturally this is the software I want to teach about and share my experience with you. I have completed well over 3000 graphic projects (On Fiverr alone more than 2500 reviews) for clients, mostly including video animations like intros, outros and transitions for various Youtube channels & marketers. I would like to share the knowledge I was able to "stack up" during the process. I am always willing to help people out by enhancing their brand and Internet media.

    Who am I ?

    I am a 27 y.o (born 1989) and a University Graduate (July 2014). A few years back after shifting from one hobby to another after getting hired to prepare a website and business card for a local business in my area I finally "felt it". Since then (2011) I was expanding my skillset in this area completing various graphic related projects. Places like the WarriorForum, freelancing websites or graphic contests across the web caught me in its own snare and never let me go.

    What is the next step?

    After having several years of experience as a freelancer with a keen focus on creativity handling various projects ranging as work for very small businesses to websites and Youtube channels with over 300k subscribers I am looking forward to share my knowledge wrapped up in exciting courses easy to follow and most important - USEFUL for you! I am looking to work with forward-thinking people who wish to create something original, that will reinforce their brand and follow their vibe. I am always committed to provide value while giving away random tips to make your workflow easier.

    Did you really create something?

    How far would bring me lying and any sort of scam? Nowhere. I do believe in making the Web Business and Internet Marketing world a better place, because my actions will affect my fellowers, friends, family and future children. Since I live in a small village where people work in agriculture or do physical labor work I set the goal for me to be a sort of pioneer in the web-based business field growing myself as a designer every single day.

    You can always contact me as I don't mind talking to anyone and sharing how could I help your business or what course I might record if you like my teaching style!
