25-year history of PowerPoint


Holy kaw, PowerPoint is twenty-five years old. It has quite a history. Read more about co-creator Robert Gaskins.

The BBC article quotes a presentation expert called Max Atkinson in this way:

In the past 25 years, I’ve asked hundreds of people how many PowerPoint presentations they’ve seen that came across as really inspiring and enthusiastic. Most struggle to come up with a single example, and the most optimistic answer I’ve heard was “two”.

I submit my PowerPoint file to make that “three.” 🙂

If these speaking tips, can’t help, nothing will.
