When you have to share a PowerPoint presentation with colleagues or customers you have one or two choices.
To share your presentation with others, you could:
So you have some options.
And if you are the proud licensee of a new copy of PowerPoint 2010 or Office 2010 you have another option up your sleeve.
You’ll need to have a Windows Live ID, but that’s it.
When you have finished your PowerPoint presentation you simply go to the Slide Show tab and select Broadband Slide Show. Select Start Broadcast, and…wait. The wait will depend on the size of your uploaded file and your data link.
The system gives you a unique web address for your uploaded PowerPoint presentation. You can share that with colleagues or customers. Your customers only need a web browser to access your slides that they can watch in full screen view.
It’s simple and effective. But you’ll still need to have a phone, Skype or Messenger link for a two-way discussion. It’s not webinar software.
Once your presentation is over, you effectively close the link and no-one can access the presentation. That’s a major difference with posting your presentation on something like SlideShare.
It’s neat. It’s cheap and it’s cheerful.
