Not your Mother's Powerpoint: The Magic of Slide Docs

  • Caitlin Locke, Performance Development Group

PowerPoint is a mainstay of every computer for as long as anyone can remember. Yet, despite spending decades with this piece of software, the advanced elements of PowerPoint often lay dormant, hidden behind the drudgery of boardroom presentations and briefing requirements.

However, PowerPoint can be the only tool you need in your arsenal to create a beautiful document with visuals, hyperlinkinks, and diagrams galore! Anyone who finds themselves needing to represent content in a module, white paper, or workbook format can achieve cohesive and powerful design by leveraging SlideDoc design. Slidedocs are visual documents developed in presentation software that are intended to be read and referenced instead of projected. SlideDocs will empower you to take back the design process and change the way you look at PowerPoint forever.
