Best Free PowerPoint Templates for 2022

Best PowerPoint Free Templates 2020

When it comes to presentation software, PowerPoint is arguably the most well known.

Since its debut in 1987, Powerpoint has grown to more than 500 million users and is the force behind an estimated 30 million presentations each day ! 

And whilst some consider PowerPoint to be slightly outdated , many others continue to enjoy the familiarity and ease of use the program is so famous for. It’s also sometimes the only choice if you are at a company that uses the Microsoft suite of tools.

But with widespread appeal comes an issue: with so many PowerPoint presentations out there in the world, how do you make yours stand out?

For truly memorable and attention-grabbing presentation design, you need to step beyond the default themes within PowerPoint itself, and look further afield for inspiration. Luckily a quick search online will deliver you thousands of options, which throws up the next challenge: how do you choose which one is right for you?

To help you out, we’ve rounded up the best of SlidesCarnival and grouped them by industry. From marketing templates to designs suited for educational purposes, these free PowerPoint templates may be just what you’re looking for.

Best PowerPoint Templates for business presentations 

There are a number of considerations to keep in mind when creating a business presentation . First, it needs to look polished and professional. And for this you need a design that conveys real confidence; presenting information in a clean, organized way. 

Secondly, you’ll need a template that can be easily manipulated to fit your business’s brand guidelines. Being able to add your brand logo and company color scheme, for example, is key to any professional presentation . 

And lastly, you’ll want to stay away from any super intense color combinations, fancy fonts or designs that’ll distract from your content. Professionalism is key, and it’s simplicity that will help to communicate that best. 

Finding a template that ticks all those boxes can be tricky, so here’s a shortlist of our favorite PowerPoint business themes:

Free business PowerPoint template with concentric circles

Free professional blue PowerPoint template and Google Slides theme with concentric circles

This is a design that has a slightly scientific look thanks to its concentric circles background. You’ll be able to customize it easily, as the color blue can be changed to use the primary color of your brand identity.

Free corporate PowerPoint template with photos

Free corporate Powerpoint template or Google Slides theme with photo backgrounds

Best PowerPoint Templates for pitch decks 

Creating a pitch deck can be pretty stressful. Often, a startup’s entire future can depend on just one presentation. And when the stakes are that high, it’s super important you get it right.

Our advice? Keep it simple. Think clean designs, neat fonts and colors schemes that support — not distract — from your key message.

That being said, there’s still space to have some fun! And your audience is much more likely to engage with what you have to say if you build in visual interest. Remember: around 65% of the population are visual learners . So make sure you use a PowerPoint template that includes sleek graphs — to show forecasted growth — as well as dynamic image-based slides to portray your passion, mission and brand values.

Select any of the following templates to build a pitch deck that investors will love:

Free cool PowerPoint Template with diverse people

Best PowerPoint templates for education 

You can sum up the best educational presentations in two words: informative and inspiring.

But if you think that ‘informative’ means packed full of text — think again! A pared back design style, with only a handful of words on each chart, can actually support learning much more than an overworked slide with hundreds of words to sift through!

After all, how inspiring is it to sit through slide after slide of dense text?

If you can, try to keep it to 3 or 4 bullet points per slide and use plenty of images to support your lesson plan. What’s more, depending on the age of kids you’re teaching, you may need to use your presentation deck to break up the session and reinvigorate your audience. Including fun, pop quizzes half way through, or visual puzzles to solve, will keep everyone hanging on for more!

We get it though: this all sounds like a lot of hard work, doesn’t it?

And, as a teacher, we’ll guess that you’re pretty strapped for time.

This list of free, ready-made Powerpoint themes will help you create engaging educational presentations in no time:

Free educational PowerPoint template with cute robots

Free educational Powerpoint template and Google Slides theme with with cute robots

Best PowerPoint templates for marketing 

There’s a popular saying in marketing: “You need to sell the sizzle, not the sausage.”

Essentially, marketing is all about promoting the emotional hook of a product or service. It’s not so much about what you stand to benefit from being a customer, but how that’ll make you feel.

And the fastest way to create that much needed sizzle? Through evocative design.

This is true whether you’re commissioning new packaging, or producing a sales and marketing presentation deck. The way you box-up your message is almost more important than what you’re actually saying!

Perhaps you’re presenting sales results to a client, or sharing a success story internally with your team. You may even be part of the line-up for an industry conference (in which case you’re looking to attract new partners). No matter what the purpose of your marketing presentation, it needs to look as good as the news it’s delivering.

In practice, modern, sleek designs do a great job. But you’ll also want a template that supports visual aids — like graphs and tables — as well as big, bold imagery or illustrations. Of course, don’t forget to apply your business’s color palette and visual brand language, too.

Bring all of this together, and your presentation will be sizzling in no time! To get you started, these are our favorite free PowerPoint templates for marketing decks:

Best PowerPoint templates for medical presentations 

Healthcare professionals have a lot on their plate.

And let’s be honest: if you’re a HCP, you want to save all your brainpower for saving lives — not for choosing your next presentation template! 

So let’s bring this back to basics. A medical powerpoint should be clean, clear, trustworthy and reliable. Of all the industries, this is where you want to say it most straight. What’s the data telling us? Why is that important? What are the next steps?

There’s no need for fancy, over-complicated design work. Simplicity is always key.

Taking this on board, we’ve rounded up a selection of PowerPoint templates that convey trust and professionalism in the medical world. These templates are super streamlined, well-structured and suitably simple, yet are also visually appealing enough to ensure your audience is engaged with the facts they need to know. 

Check out these PowerPoint templates for your next medical presentation , below:

Advantages of ready-made PowerPoint Templates 

Anyone who has access to PowerPoint now has the power to build engaging and memorable presentation decks. And that’s a great thing: studies have shown that over 90% of us feel more comfortable and confident presenting when we’ve got a beautifully designed presentation to support us. 

However, without the visual skill, confidence, or time to create your own design and layout from scratch , it can be difficult to land on a design that gives your content the attention it deserves.

That’s why ready-made, free-to-use PowerPoint templates are so great. They remove the obstacle of time-consuming creation, and provide us all with the visual support we need to feel confident in front of an audience. 

And what’s more, the best PowerPoint templates allow us to feel every inch the expert in our field; helping us to produce sleek, convincing presentations we can all be proud of.
