The Corporate Approach to Presenting PowerPoint on an iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch
Unfortunately the reality is that converting PowerPoint to a Keynote format for presentation on an iPad or using an expensive third-party Office substitute application on any of the devices has proven to be disappointing. The conversion does not work as well as expected and presenters are embarrassed when “surprises” show up during the presentation.
Other challenges have also arisen. The corporate IT department doesn’t want to approve all sorts of new software that they have to support. With many people using a home computer to sync their device for their media files, it becomes a big hassle to try to get a new presentation on the device in a hurry. The promise of an easy solution for corporate presenters has not proven to be the reality for most.
Since my focus is on business presentations, I decided to see if there was an approach that gave reliable results within the constraints of most corporate environments. And I discovered that there is a way to reliably present corporate PowerPoint presentations on an iPad, iPhone, or iPod Touch. The video below explains the method, and the Table of Contents allows you to jump quickly to any step in the process when you are reviewing the video later. The video is 20 minutes long, but I wanted to show you enough detail to make it easy for you to use it on your own iOS device. Let me know how it works for you.
