Not all design combinations add up to success. There is no one right way to design your next PowerPoint presentation, but some designs make more sense than others and are more effective. Luckily, new versions of PowerPoint suggest ideas for you based on the content you're presenting. In this session you will learn how to create an awesome, readable and functional PowerPoint.

Hosting VIPs is is an evolving science that has thankfully evolved as the times have changed. Planners must keep in mind that proper etiquette/protocol encompasses the body of manners and forms prescribed by custom, usage, or authority. Etiquette preserves respect for the rights and dignities of others. In short, etiquette represents good manners. (Adapted from A Guide to Protocol and Etiquette for Official Entertainment, US Army)
