If you have ever given a presentation to a group of people, you know how helpful PowerPoint can be. It's easy to lay out a professional presentation that you project onto a screen.
On each PowerPoint slide, you've got brightly colored backgrounds, words, graphs, images and maybe even a few features that really capture your audience's attention. Maybe you've got each new slide fading in or out, rather than you just clicking from one slide to the next one. Or, maybe you've added a few sound clips, or animation.
It's all helping you to achieve your goal: convey information to a group of people, in an organized and professional manner. It's why PowerPoint has become synonymous with presentations. It's easy to use, and it helps you organize your thoughts and share them with other people.
However, PowerPoint presentations can sometimes feel too safe; too predictable. Which is where pptPlex from Microsoft Office Labs can come in handy. pptPlex helps you to jazz up PowerPoint presentations in a few ways. That starts with you organizing your slides into sections, rather than just individual slides. You'll see each section, and each slide in that section. That can make your presentation more spontaneous. If someone asks a question about a topic that comes later in your presentation, just move over to that new section. (See image below.)
