Guy Kawasaki

Guy Kawasaki did the Tuesday morning keynote at the Presentation Summit in New Orleans on September 29, 2015. He started by reminiscing about his days as the chief evangelist for Apple Computer. He spoke passionately about Steve Jobs. Guy speaks around 75 times a year in conferences and delivers keynotes. His work certainly has to do so much with speaking.

Removing Customizations from PCB Files

Removing Customizations from PCB Files in PowerPoint 2016PowerPoint add-ins help in adding new capabilities that can polish your presentation in many ways. But when the time comes to uninstall these add-ins for whatsoever reason, you might be surprised to find their menu customizations still exist! In another scenario, you may have customized your PowerPoint menus and toolbars to a large extent -- and may now want to restore everything to a pristine state. In either case, it is possible to lose all these customizations. The key to this solution lies in PCB files.
Status Bar

The Status Bar is a thin strip located at the bottom of the PowerPoint 2016 interface. This area provides information about the active slide and also provides several View options. To work with options in the Status Bar, you must have a presentation open in PowerPoint 2016 -- otherwise the options within the Status Bar will be grayed out.
Notes Pane

PowerPoint 2016's tri-paned interface has three regions: the Slides Pane, the Slide Area, and the Notes Pane. The Notes Pane is placed right below the Slide Area. The Notes Pane provides space to add speaker's notes that can be so helpful to the presenter while presenting - you can also write any sort of information about the presentation or individual slide.
