For two of the community Lync talks (NxtGenUG & NEBytes) I’d given recently I made myself a Metro inspired PowerPoint template. I thought it might be of interest to a few other people so you can download it here for use in your own presentations…

Some of the slide types I’ve included:

Title slide:


Section header:


WP7 style “swipe comparison”:

Section change – accent colour:


WP7 “tile” content display:



There is a default animation for the items on the page & for transitions between slides that act in a “metro ish” way – using the default available movements… The section header slides also animate kind of like a “live tile” flipping over but it’s far from perfect (you need to use a bit of imagination). The black background can be a bit fun bit with a little bit of the “background removal” tool you can get diagrams or pictures to look pretty good:

If you download it and end up using the template I’d love to here what you did with it & suggestions for improvements are always welcome.
