Want to make your Google Slides presentation beautiful? Let's 'Explore' the ways!

In my life, I have witnessed countless presentations. Many have been decent, a few have been exemplary, and some have been downright awful. Many variables can contribute to the quality of a presentation from content, to format, to the tone of the speaker's voice, but one thing that completely ruins a presentation is when a well-intentioned presenter reads text from their slide deck. Instead of using slides to enhance the presentation, the slide deck IS the presentation. Yuck, please excuse me while I gag!

So, how can you avoid the presentation doldrums, where your audience is doing nothing but checking their watches every thirty seconds? Simply use the 'Explore' tool to improve your slide layout and make that presentation pop!

The 'Explore' tool, formally known as the 'Research' tool, is a fantastic resource for researching topics, image exploration, gathering citations and can be found in the lower right-hand corner of Google Docs, Slides, and Sheets. While working in Slides, the tool can also set layouts, such as filling the entire slide with an image (and many other options) that will have your audience falling head over heels instead of falling asleep.

Are you ready to take the plunge and step up your presentation game? Watch the short video below to learn how!
