I know this is probably making the rounds to all of us who use PowerPoint, but since this is so funny and unfortunately accurate I thought I’d share.

– How NOT To Use Powerpoint By Comedian Don McMillan

While on the subject of PowerPoint…I don’t necessarily love it, but it is a helpful tool…two things that I’ve found that have helped keep my PP Presentations fun (at least for me (which is important too)):

  1. Create my own custom templates/slide designs
    (I just can’t take Dad’s Tie anymore )
  2. Use nice graphics/artwork…Microsoft has their clipart site: http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/clipart/default.aspx?lc=en-us , but I’ve really enjoyed using sites like stock.xchng: http://www.sxc.hu/index.phtml to get great quality images…(I’ll re-size in Fireworks or PhotoShop Elements to keep the file size down)

What do you all do?
