PowerPoint Presentation Resources

PowerPoint is a slide-based presentation program owned by Microsoft. PowerPoint, initially named “Presenter”, was created by  Forethought, Inc. Microsoft’s version of PowerPoint was officially launched in  1990 as part of the Microsoft Office suite and the corporate workplace have never been the same since.

However, PowerPoint can be a great tool when used properly and is important for anyone involved with creating presentations and/or trainings.

“You may not be as tall as Lincoln or as eloquent as Churchill, but you are still able to make great PowerPoint presentations.”

– Seth Godin
