Almost any PowerPoint presentation would benefit from clever animation. And, lucky for us, the Internet has an endless supply of animated templates that you can download for free (or for a nominal fee) and customize to your company’s specific needs. Just search on “free animated PowerPoint presentations,” and stand back for the avalanche of results.
However, if you’re a great artist (or even a rookie) and fancy a challenge, study the templates for ideas, then create your own animated slideshow. For a refresher course on PowerPoint animations, see these articles: PowerPoint tips from Duarte’s Five Rules Presentation and How to create Motion Paths in PowerPoint.
