How to Use the Free Business Presentation Template?
1. Open the template in PowerPoint.
2. In the “Welcome" / first slide, type the title of your presentation and your company name in their respective spots. Replace the graphic at the right with your company logo.
3. Modify the content on the master slide:
A. Click View > Master > Slide Master to access the master slide.
B. Add / delete menu buttons, unless the number of topics of your presentation equals five.
TIP: If you need to increase / decrease the size of a button, select it and hold the shift key and drag a corner handle down / up. If you do change the size of a button, make sure all the other buttons are also of the same size for aesthetics.
C. Replace the text Menu 1, Menu 2… with your own text.
D. Include any other common content, such as your company logo, on the master slide.
E. Hyperlink the menu buttons to their respective slides.

F. Hyperlink the navigation buttons.
NOTE: Although you can use the left- and right-arrow keys to traverse the slides, the navigation buttons are necessary if you wish to run the presentation in the kiosk mode.
4. Modify the content on a normal slide:
A. Click View > Normal to return to the normal slide mode.
B. Click the second slide in the Slide pane.
C. Delete the default text. Type your text as bullet points, place pictures and graphics, or add animation, audio or video files.
TIP: To make your presentation effective and to avoid information overload, use only three to five bullet points on each slide. Limit the number of words in each point. Should it have more than one sentence, use a mix of short and long sentences.
Replace text where possible and feasible with relevant images or videos. Use pie chart and graphs for statistical data.
