Presenting at an upcoming conference, seminar or online presentation?  Get ideas, tips and recommendations to help you prepare for a successful presentation in our Presenter Toolkit.

Stand out from the crowd and leave your audience wanting more!  Switch out your usual PowerPoint and create a more interactive and engaging presentation using one of the tools below:

  • Apple Keynote
    • With its powerful tools and dazzling effects, Keynote makes it easy to create stunning and memorable presentations. You can even use Apple Pencil on your iPad to create diagrams or illustrations that bring your slides to life. And with real‑time collaboration, your team can work together, whether they’re on Mac, iPad, or iPhone, or using a PC.

  • Haiku Deck
    • Haiku Deck is the easiest way to create an amazing presentation on the web, iPad, or iPhone.  Choose from millions of decks to create an interactive design that focuses on your key points.

  • Microsoft Sway
    • Create visually striking newsletters, presentations, and documentation in minutes.  Sway dynamically adapts so it looks great on any screen, is integrated with your device and the web, and can be shared or co-edited with a simple URL.  

  • Powtoon
    • When you can’t afford to be ignored, use a Powtoon to grab the attention of your attendees, in any business situation.  Use ready-made templates to create a high quality Powtoon, fast.  

  • Prezi
    • Use in the cloud or on your desktop, Prezi is everywhere you need it to be.  Prezi Next is engineered for smooth, high-resolution remote presenting across all devices, even when there's no wi-fi.  With many deck templates to choose from, your attendees will stay engaged for the duration of your presentation.
