Meet the World’s 16-Year-Old PowerPoint Champs | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

Most 16-year-olds are focused on sports or cars or maybe even the SATs. For Tyler Millis and Arjit Kansal, two teens from Fort Meyers, Florida and New Delhi, India, respectively, their passion is PowerPoint. Yep, you read that right: PowerPoint.


The two 16-year-olds beat out 400,000 candidates from 130 countries to be named Microsoft Office Specialist World Champions— Millis in PowerPoint 2007, and Kansal in PowerPoint 2010. The 13th annual competition, sponsored by Certiport, holds a series of tests and interviews for students to show off their knowledge of Microsoft Office products. Only 123 students made it to the final round, with Millis and Kansal taking home the PowerPoint titles and $5,000 scholarships....

Jeff Domansky's insight:

Several good tips, but mostly a good story about determination and content.

8 Reasons Why SlideShare is Important for Social Media Marketing

8 Reasons Why SlideShare is Important for Social Media Marketing | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

..While Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, LinkedIn, and Google+ dominate the social landscape, Slideshare is a platform that I believe has a lot of benefits and is being underutilized by many companies.


Here are eight reasons why your company should be using Slideshare as a part of your social media marketing....

Jeff Domansky's insight:

SlideShare is a valuable B2B platform if you know how to put together powerful presentations. Otherwise, PowerPoint does not equal more influence. The reach and potential numbers are positive. Just make sure you create effective presentations.
