How could I not end this #Microsoft365Challenge off with my favorite things about #PowerPoint? Yay!!! I’ve made it (again). Please stop me if I try to do this again. To this day, #PowerPoint / #Creative blogs are still my most popular blogs and I’m so glad you enjoy the creative stuff in #PowerPoint etc. as much as I do. To wrap up I’ll share my 16 favorite things BY FAR that you can do in #PowerPoint and most probably didn’t know you could!!

Thank you so much to everyone who’s followed my journey (especially those who followed it twice) the comments, likes & feedback makes it all worth it!! Don’t ever forget that you’re absolutely amazing and that you can do this!!

No person is born with skill, we only acquire it through people who share it with us. Whether it be training, a video, blog or a coffee & chat with someone. Please always share the knowledge you’ve learnt with others, and somehow, together, we’ll change the world for the better. 

So here’s the 16 (changed to 17), it’s a total of 18 videos of 5 minutes each and 1 blog, which means that in 90 minutes you’ll be a #PowerPoint Rockstar!!! 🙂
