About the author, Ellen Finkelstein
Besides being a Microsoft PowerPoint MVP (one of 14 in the United States) and the bestselling author of PowerPoint for Teachers and many other books on PowerPoint and presenting, I'm an experienced, expert trainer in presentation skills. I wrote this e-book to help presenters who need to design their own slides but don't have design skills. I'm not a designer either and went through a long process to learn how to design slides that consistently get raves. I want to show you some simple but valuable techniques you can use quickly and easily to get great results.
