You Don’t Know, What You Do Not Know. The conversation this episode is Troy and Lori of TLC Creative talking about features and processes for PowerPoint design and presenting that are not intuitive to know are available, and therefore many people, professional presentation designers included, do not know they exist. Join the conversation here.
Ready for something exciting!? Listen to Troy, Sandy and Nolan ask ChatGPT “What skills do I need to prepare to be a professional PowerPoint presentation designer?” and dissect the reply. Join the conversation and hear how good, or bad, ChatGPT is about defining our job!
Working a set of our TLC Creative show computers I had this frustrating error when attempting to open the MS Teams based presentation:
I confirmed MS Teams was logged in with my credentials. Confirmed I can access the Team, folder and file. I also confirmed I was able to open the PowerPoint file in the Teams viewer and web-based browser version of PowerPoint. But I did not confirm PowerPoint/MS Office was logged in with my account – the user seen in the upper right of PowerPoint.
Each time I went through the process of logging myself as the profile for Office to use, the above error taunted me (argh!!). The solution, which I have confirmed works on yet another computer having the same Microsoft seizure, is to SIGN OUT of all profiles. Then sign in with your credentials. I have no idea why Office errors out when trying to login your profiles sometimes, but it does. And I now have a solution that works (but sorry to everyone else that needs to also use that computer and must go through the login profile process vs. just clicking to change profiles…).

Ending the month with a few photos of an amazing event I was part of last month. All content has been removed from these amazing floor-t0-ceiling, curved layout LED walls that created an amazing event. Presentations looked amazing spanning this canvas!

Happy Thanksgiving for those of us in the U.S.!
The fun and timely note about this post, and image, is I leveraged Microsoft’s newly released Windows OS Co-Pilot. I entered the prompt “Create an image of a Thanksgiving turkey giving a presentation.” 4 image options offered, all created by Dall-E-3, and the above is a royalty-free, good resolution (original image was 1024x1024px), creative and something no else has.
