MacVoices #15158: Joe Kissell Takes Control of Keynote

Joe Kissell has a new book (what a surprise!), Take Control of Keynote, and he explains why he took two separate approaches to advising you on Apple’s presentation program. First, Joe looks at the technical aspects of Keynote – how to get the effects you want, the ground-up redesign of Keynote and how to better understand where to find what you’re looking for. Joe also discusses how to give a good presentation, no matter what software you’re using. From the style of you slides to your delivery, there are tips here that even the most experienced presenter will benefit from. Finally, we look at some of the flashier features of Keynote and how you can use them tastefully to better convey your message.
