The PowerPoint® Blog

I work with PowerPoint on a daily basis and I am very honored to be a Microsoft PowerPoint MVP. We have a talented team of presentation designers at TLC Creative Services and ThePowerPointBlog is our area to highlight PowerPoint tips, tricks, examples and tutorials. Enjoy! Troy Chollar

PowerPoint Big and Small (part 2)

The backside, technical side, of PowerPoint can be big – huge, or small. Image above is me with presentation computers connected to a broadcast TV booth. And image below is me sitting beside the audience and presentation computers connected to a single video switcher. It’s all about designing slides to the audience environment – and knowing how to connect to systems of any size!

PowerPoint Big and Small

Our PowerPoint design work covers a lot of presentation setups. In the same month the top image a PowerPoint on a 60′ wide screen, and the bottom image is PowerPoint on an 85″ screen. Design to the size of the screen for your audience!

The Neuxpower Team

These are the three behind NXPowerlite and Slidewise – the Neuxpower team! No I am not a beer drinker, but when you are with a group from the UK, everyone has a pint!

New Podcast Episode – “No, we don’t do that”

As long-time designers, there are design services that once were offered, but not offered any longer. Nolan, Troy and Sandy talk about some of those presentation design and graphic design services that they no longer offer, or sometimes never offered. And this conversation is a continuation of a conversation Nancy Duarte started at the 2022 Presentation Summit when talking about niche focus and offering. Listen here.

Time with Nancy Duarte

At the 2022 Presentation Summit conference, I had a short time with visiting with Nancy Duarte who was only there for 1 evening. Inspiration, fun and lots of stories!

It’s a Small World – But Not This Small

This is from an actual email I received – it was too good to not share. Everyone says, “it is a small world” and “technology brings us together”. But a company over 5,000 miles away (8000 kilometers) is not “just down the road”…

BTW, created the above graphic in less than 3 minutes using PowerPoint as the layout canvas and some Noun Project icons (see, connecting this random post to the blog focus!).
