Wouldn’t you love it if one letter on your keyboard could solve a problem? For this problem, press X. For that problem, press Y. For another problem, press the b-key.
Sounds good, right? Well, there is a one-letter solution to one of the most vexing problems with PowerPoint.
Play Doesn’t Mean Forever
Too often, presenters begin their presentation using PowerPoint and leave the PowerPoint up for the entire presentation. The longer the presentation, the bigger the problem. More often than not, presenters don’t even realize they have an option, a choice not to have PowerPoint playing during their entire presentation.

The one-letter solution does exist on your keyboard–at least for this one problem. It’s the “B” key.
In this week’s edition of The Rules of Engagement, I’ll show you how using the “B” key can completely change the impact your PowerPoint has on the audience and how to use it to keep your audience from nodding off in boredom–no matter how dry the subject matter.
