Garnish your presentations with visual splendors

Excel and PowerPoint are The God's gifts to mankind.
However, PowerPoint  often gets transformed in to a toxic weapon for mass production of transient zombies out of energetic corporate citizens. The paradox is , the chief ‘Execution’ officer aka the presenter is unaware of the weapon’s destructive persona and its outcomes despite his/her noble intentions.

Well, there are ways to make your ‘Power’ Points minimally lethal and positively effective.
We all know that 'content is the king' .Apart from that, a wise use of pictures and clip art can enhance the value of the content.
That’s where ShapeChef from Wolsoft comes handy.
Shape chef is a PowerPoint add-in for  2007,2010 and 2013 versions.

This chef is an expert in garnishing your presentations and can spice up your content with Pics and can make visual splendors out of PowerPoints suffering from Acute Textitis. (Inflammation due to profusion of text)

 



Wolsoft introduces an awesome add-in , ShapeChef that can be handy in collecting, organizing, sharing and choosing the right clip art for your message.
With ShapeChef at your disposal,
