Trade in Your PowerPoint Bullet Points: How to Create Custom Icons

We’ve heard the question countless times, ‘Do bullet points belong in PowerPoint?

In the tutorial below Bruce Gabrielle, author of Speaking PowerPoint, outlines how to easily create a set of custom icons that complement each other while at the same time add a more engaging visual element to your PowerPoint slide than would the typical bullet points we’re so accustomed to seeing.
