Using templates to create presentations

Making presentations is a core job task for many professions. In sales, training, and management consulting, for example, regularly presenting information in an organized and visually appealing format is the key to making sales, preparing a workforce, or advising clients about strategy decisions. Creating effective presentations not only requires research and design skills but also calls for proficiency in presentation programs such as Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2003. With your busy schedule, you can't afford to spend a lot of time creating or designing elaborate layouts for your presentations.

PowerPoint 2003 templates can help you complete this task easily. You can either save your common presentation designs as templates or create new templates specific to your presentation requirements. Whatever your needs, PowerPoint templates can help you bring consistency to your presentation design and branding, and appeal to your information.

Use the following information to create new templates, or to find and use existing professionally designed templates free of charge. Watch as your next presentation reflects both a more consistent look and a stronger message, because you spent more time on the contents rather than the package.
