High Level Complex PowerPoint Presentations

I want to learn how to make those very high level, complex, detailed PowerPoint presentations the high ranking officers of the firm use. The slides may have multiple detailed tables copied over from Excel or might have a complex design on it, each highlighted in a different colors with areas and everything. It sounds like a lot but they are beautifully designed. I have advaced skills but never needed to create these. Does anyone know of the best place to learn this? I've been on Amazon looking for some books but don't really know if that is what I'm looking for. There are so many. Haven't really found anything online.

Maybe 30 second-training.com has the more concise answer. One can do tables and pie graphs and designs without PowerPoint. One may use PowerPoint as the frame and motion creator for previously done graphics. Please examine the following software programs and graphics creation programs: 1) Adobe Illustrator-for freeform designs 2) Graphics Programs on Linux 3) Microsoft Publisher 4) Microsoft Access for tables and graphics together 5) Adobe InDesign 6) Adobe Photoshop (for altered photos) 7) DreamWeaver (for partially pre-coded webpages and frames) I imagine that this helps. It may also be that the officers use Microsoft Project. Emily Taussig on 3/17/2013 11:00:06 PM

Do you have any colleges nearby? It might be helpful to take a computer course offered there. Kelly Biggert on 3/4/2013 9:25:24 AM

Have you ever used Microsoft's Business website? They offer free tutorials on any type and year of Microsoft programs. You can pick and choose as well. I use the site frequently if I am experiencing any difficulty with creation of and the editing of. Another thought, if you can access one of those presentations that has already been designed and can have permission to edit (I suggest they offer you a copy :), then you can move around in the document and see how they did what they did. Good luck and happy creating! Kelly Dodson on 3/1/2013 4:08:49 PM
I highly recommend Webucator. I took a full-day on-line interactive class on Advanced PowerPoint with them, and it was GREAT! I have been applying what I learned, and we are cranking out some impressive presentations; very crisp and professional. They provide you with everything you need to attend the class, participate, and retain what you learn. I still refer to the workbook that I received. They can also customize training if you put a group together yourself. Senior EA-Business Writer on 3/1/2013 3:55:57 PM
