Countdown PowerPoint Template With 10 Minutes Timer

Last updated on January 2nd, 2024

It often happens that one has to take a break during a seminar to give the audience some time to enjoy refreshments before they can comeback for the remaining session of the event. The problem with the recess is often that the audience is not punctual enough to return on time. The Character Countdown PowerPoint Template provides a 10 minute slide show which can be used to alert your audience regarding the remaining time before the break is over.

Adorable Monster Character with Countdown Slides

Each slide in the sequence shows a monster character which alerts the audience about the remaining time. The first slide starts at 10 minutes with a message for the audience to enjoy the refreshments. You can of course customize this message to add anything appropriate according to your event.

Slides that Switch Automatically

As the time counts down, there is a message about the remaining time. The slide switches after every 1 minute, with a new slide explaining about how much time is left before the break ends.

You can also use this template for 10 minute presentations, where each slide will switch automatically after 1 minute. This can allow you to perfectly time a 10 minute presentation. You can also adjust the time from the ‘Transitions’ tab. This can allow you to add/remove slides and set your own custom duration (via Transitions tab) for your presentation or slide show.
