2 simple hacks to jazz up your next presentation

Fonts have a huge role to play in making a presentation look great. Take a look at these two slides. The first slide is your default. When you open a new presentation in MS PowerPoint, the default font is Calibri.

Such a slide is run of the mill and boring. Everyone is doing this all the time. Now look at the second slide. With a little bit of effort, you can enhance the look and feel of your presentation. You can even own this style by constantly using this special font for all your presentations.

Using a 'new' font does make you and your presentation stand out. But which font should you use?

Use what you like
You browse a lot of websites. Do you like the fonts you see on those sites? Did you know you could use most of those fonts in your presentation too. Here is how to do it using 2 simple hacks.
