Recently I did workshops for a company that has a mix of users on Windows and Mac, all using PowerPoint. While the features in the latest versions are very similar, the interface is slightly different. I have used PowerPoint on the Mac before, so I knew where to find the techniques I wanted to demonstrate. If you need to learn where a feature or function is on the Mac version of PowerPoint, the best tutorials are on indezine.com at this link. Geetesh, who writes these tutorials, is a great resource and I’ll be seeing him at the Presentation Summit in October. BTW, if you are responsible for presentations in your organization and haven’t checked out the Presentation Summit, do so now at this link. I hope to see you there.
