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 many business presentations, it’s essential to show a list of items on a slide to help convey a message. Just because your slide requires a list doesn’t mean you have to be tied to the standard bullet point options – try using icons instead. 

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.
