    Link has been blocked by YouTube. I would suggest reading the Keynote Help. You will learn a lot from it. I have done some really nice presentations both for work and personal use. If you have a design background it helps. If you need some inspiration, just do a search and see what others have done. Will give you a starting point. I have other programs that I can use that are far superior to Keynote, but sometimes Keynote is just right for the task at hand. Especially if I need it done quick. Lots of nice features and not a huge learning curve to it. One thing I have learned to use very well in Keynote is the transitions. I find the timing and type of transition you use are very key to doing a great presentation. Another plus to a good presentation, if you are using photos or video, is having high quality shots or footage. I hope my suggestions give you a starting point.

    Another good point. Music can make a difference to. I try to use music to fit the theme of the presentation. Respond to my email and I will send you some zips.
