Slide Master and Slide Layouts: Add Your Logo or Graphic to the Slide Master in PowerPoint

You may have observed an omnipresent company logo in many slides. That raises a question: do you really need to have a company logo on all your slides? First, it takes a fair amount of space. Secondly, the audience knows which company the speaker belongs to since that information is almost always placed on the first slide. Also speakers do introduce themselves and their companies. So, do all slides need that extra branding? All these questions are fair, and there are equally fair answers for them. You should certainly add a company logo to your first slide, and then place a more subtle or watermarked logo on the rest of the slides, or even no logo at all. Fortunately, PowerPoint makes it easy to add a logo to all your slides, and then you can make it sure that some slides have no logo at all or even a more understated version of the logo.
