Make A Connection with Your Audience Through Questions

July 24, 2019

Make A Connection with Your Audience Through Questions

At least four out of ten people in every Get to the Message Presentations Workshop say: "I want to engage my audience." "Engage" may not be the right word choice as its definition includes charming, appealing, agreeable, dazzling, arresting, captivating, enchanting and bewitching. It seems like the word "Connect" makes more sense in business: A connection is a link, logical relation, something that joins, entwines, unites. "I want to connect with my listeners" is a worthy goal. Now it is about finding links to connect two parts—you and the listeners.

Color Models: Saturation in HSL

Color Models: Saturation in HSL

Color is a fascinating subject; a subject that evokes enough creativity and pickles the minds of many. If we were to pause looking at color as a creative subject for just a brief amount of time, we would be able to explore it from a different perspective, the perspective of science! This color science will open new avenues for us to understand why colors behave in certain ways. For example, why do some colors look more vibrant than others? What is this quality that makes them shout? And why are some colors so muted? what makes them so understated and well-behaved? Well, the quality of color that makes all this shouting and mellowing happen is called Saturation, and believe it or not, it has everything to do with the color grey. We will learn more about what grey does to colors in this tutorial.

Explore how Saturation works within the HSL color model.


Color Models: Hue in HSL

July 19, 2019

Color Models: Hue in HSL

Colors can be darker or lighter: and this in color terms is called Luminosity. Color can also be saturated (vibrant) or desaturated (neutralized). Desaturation can be done to a lesser extent or more, and when it happens to the maximum extent possible, that's the same as completely neutralizing the color altogether. Think about converting a colored picture to grayscale and you will understand what may be happening! This property of color is called Saturation. Now beyond Luminosity and Saturation lies the Hue of color. You can have a blue that’s dark or light, and even vibrant or neutralized. But you can also have a green, a red, an orange, a yellow, or any other color with those same attributes. This red, green, yellow, or blue property is nothing else but the Hue of the color.

Explore the role that Hue plays in the world of color.

Text Placeholders vs. Text Boxes in PowerPoint 365 for Mac

Before exploring the concept of differences between text placeholders and text boxes, let us start with these thoughts: Aren't text boxes and text placeholders the same? Are they really different? And why should anyone bother even if they are different? All these are valid questions, and the answers to them form one of the most important foundations in learning to create more structured presentations in PowerPoint.
