A first move for many presenters faced with the prospect of giving a PowerPoint presentation is a search of their own notebook for something similar.
Their search then extends to anyone in the office within earshot. And then the search for existing PowerPoint presentations extends to the office network, the I drive or the K drive.
That all makes sense. But sometimes it’s all a bit too restrictive.
When your presentation search horizon is limited to your previous work or that of your immediate colleagues your search is unlikely to find much that smacks of novelty or uniqueness.
That’s a problem that’s been addressed by the UK-based team at DownPPT. They’ve just announced the launch of a search engine dedicated to finding, identifying and downloading PowerPoint presentations. Whether you need a presentation for work or social reasons, there’s a good chance they might find one for you.
So the next time the presentation content or design muse leaves you, you have the option of searching the internet for presentations that just might inspire you with some fresh ideas or creativity. Searching is simplicity itself. And the task of downloading them for your own use is equally easy.
The DownPPT team does ask you to respect any copyrights that might be involved. And that’s also pretty easy. It’s worth a try.
