    I have just been put in charge of re-designing the corporate powerpoint presentation at work. This is what all of our sales reps take to customer locations to secure new business (no pressure, huh?). So, I could use some suggestions for websites that offer free powerpoint backgrounds that are hip and trendy yet still keeping the solid professionalism expected. This is a really big opportunity for me and if I blow it...well I'm sure you can guess the outcome. I've looked at the one's on the MS website and wasn't too impressed (no offense!). Anybody out there with any TNT (tried-n-true) ideas/advice you could share? Thanks for the help.

    Do you have a company logo or something to that effect that you could put as a background of each slide?

    I am not a whiz at Powerpoint but I just did a presentation the other day for my work and put a company image on each slide. All I did was right clicked the slide chose 'background', in the dropdown box at the bottom I chose 'fill effects', clicked the 'picture' tab, clicked the 'select picture' button, browsed for the picture, clicked 'ok', clicked 'apply to all' and I had a beautiful presentation.

    I hope that this helps you. I am not sure what format the picture needs to be but I am sure that jpg and bmp will work.

    As far as websites for that content I have no idea.

    Good Luck !!
