Hello, Insiders! My name is Komal Sachdeva and I’m a Program Manager on the PowerPoint team. I’m excited to share the availability of a new tutorial that guides you through using Presenter Coach to practice and improve your public speaking and presentation skills, whether on the web, in PowerPoint for Windows, or in PowerPoint for Mac.

Presenter Coach tutorial

With tips on public speaking, targeted evaluations, and more, Presenter Coach is an invaluable tool as you get ready to present and share content with others, whether it is a couple people on a conference call, or 100s of attendees at a large conference.

Presenter Coach evaluates your pacing, pitch, use of filler words, informal speech, euphemisms, and culturally sensitive terms. It detects when you’re being overly wordy or are simply reading the text on a slide. After each rehearsal, you get a report that includes statistics and suggestions to improve your presenting skills.
