You can use SmartArt to quickly add nice graphics to your presentations including workflow diagrams, process diagrams as well as comparison tables or graphics with pictures.

...it’s now time to turn attention to that poor person who has to stand in front of a crowd of more strangers than expected who are most likely disgruntled about losing their free time for an ‘irrelevant’ session. Yes, time to take a bite out of the presenters.

When used well, and in an appropriate setting, PowerPoint provides a genuinely effective platform that enables presenters to communicate their messages effectively.
