How to Use PowerPoint and AI to Create Better Presentations, Faster

How to Use PowerPoint and AI to Create Better Presentations, Faster

View on August 7, 2024
Start time 2:00 pm (ET)


PowerPoint is used for so many different things, from reports to infographics, posters to videos, and even, sometimes, presentations. Despite its prevalence, PowerPoint is rarely loved, with people struggling to achieve what they want in the time that they have. AI is promising to revolutionize so many areas of our lives, especially as a tool to help with everyday tasks. But what about in PowerPoint?

This session looks at how AI is being incorporated into PowerPoint to help you do more in less time. We’ll look at some of the large, global tools that are available, most notably Microsoft’s Copilot AI, and how that can help you through the content creation process. From drafting stories and summarizing content to building out slides and where it might go in the future with design and visual storytelling. We’ll see some of the other areas that Microsoft is pushing with Copilot and consider how that might impact PowerPoint either directly or indirectly. We’ll also look at some more specific AI tools that help you achieve particular outcomes. Some of these tools are external to Microsoft, focusing on custom libraries and branding. Others offer niche functionality that either expands or significantly enhances the capabilities you get in PowerPoint. Yet more are already built into PowerPoint but are typically hidden away, so we’ll uncover those tools and see how you can get more out of what you already have.

It’s an interesting time as there are so many different potential applications of AI in our everyday lives, but it’s all so new and fairly clear that the tech companies are still figuring it all out. In addition to the various tools that are available to you, we’ll be looking at the things that you can do now and try to apply them to the real-world tasks that you have to do every day. Almost all of this session will be live a demo, so you’ll have the opportunity to explore what might be possible and the impact it could have on your workflow. Will it be that we’re all bowing down to our robot overlords by the end of the session? Or will it, as I suspect, be a case of seeing these tools as something to help us overcome the tedium of most PowerPoint projects, and help bring a bit more joy and creativity to the process? Or at least, how PowerPoint and AI can save you some very valuable time.

This live event is free. A recording will be available after the event with an HRDQ-U Membership for Learning Professionals.
