This is the third in a series of quick video tips for business managers using PowerPoint by guest blogger Bruce Gabrielle, author of Speaking PowerPoint. Bruce's second tip showed how to quickly create custom silhouettes using free pictures, and his first was about turning clip art into custom icons.

Often when it's time to present to your class, other people are slated to present before and after you do. With so many presentations to pay attention to, your audience might be tempted to snooze when you want them to watch.
Here's a fix--keep your audience engaged by making over your presentation in under 5 minutes, using PowerPoint. Use video and images instead of blocks of text to make your message visually interesting. The video below, part of the 5-minute makeover series, shows you how. And don't forget to download the free template while you're at it.
