As shown above, the template starts with an introductory slide where you can add your own title and logo.

The populated mind maps when played as a PowerPoint Slide Show will merge with the animations to provide you with a professional looking presentation with your mind maps.

Reveal Your Mind Maps in a Set Sequence

When you play the mind maps in Slide Show mode, portions of the mind map are revealed in a set sequence. The sample slides are laid out in such a way that all added content is displayed one after the other. The mind maps also come with indicators marking the beginning and end of each map. Needless to say, you can also use this template for making concept maps.
