Join Microsoft PowerPoint MVP and jokester Kathy Jacobs for this engaging and instructive webinar where you'll learn to fool your audience into seeing what isn't there!


Learn to trick your audience into seeing what isn't there — no fooling! In just one magical hour you'll learn:

  • How to use hidden hyperlinks to automatically move about within your presentation as if by magic.
  • The trick to using animations to fool the eye so the audience sees only what you want them to see.
  • The secret to tricky backgrounds that allow you to create magical menu effects across slides.
  • The way to make objects appear and disappear from your slides on command.
  • How to create puzzle slides with ease and make 2-D PowerPoint look 3-D in a snap.
  • And much more

You'll learn to trick your audience into believing you spent hours on your stunning slide, but you'll spend just minutes.
