Don’t Blame PowerPoint, Make Your Presentations More Engaging

While PowerPoint is an excellent tool for creating presentations, some people are quick to blame PowerPoint when they are unable to create a good presentation. This argument appears quite absurd, considering the fact that Microsoft PowerPoint provides everything from attractive templates to a wide array of tools for creating presentations. In fact, PowerPoint probably does half the job for the end user by making all the necessary tools and various types of templates available for the user.

PowerPoint is Just A Tool

Perhaps one of the best arguments that I have ever seen in favour of PowerPoint is in a presentation by Ed, who is the founder of In his presentation he presents the argument that PowerPoint is only a tool and it is the user who must work hard to make the tool effective, just like a car which depends upon its driver. This makes a lot of sense, since anyone who does not know a tool as complex as Adobe Photoshop cannot blame Adobe for making tool the way it is but rather needs to learn better ways of using the application.
