When you’re sharing a PowerPoint deck in a Teams meeting, Meeting Coach can offer private, real-time tips to help make your presentation more compelling. 

Turn on Meeting Coach 

  1. Share your PowerPoint deck. For instructions on how to start sharing, read Share PowerPoint slides in a Teams meeting.

  2. Beneath the current slide, select Meeting Coach.

  3. Near the top of the screen, you’ll see suggestions for improving your delivery.

Types of feedback 

Meeting Coach provides feedback in the following areas: 

  • Fillers: Are you overusing sounds like “um” or “ah”, or words like “basically” or “like"? Reducing these filler words can help your presentation flow better.

  • Pace: Should you try slowing down or speeding up your delivery? Studies have shown that 80 to 160 words per minute is best for listener comprehension.

  • Sensitive language: Have you used words or phrases that could be interpreted as insensitive? Meeting Coach listens for non-inclusive speech about disability, age, gender, sexual orientation, race, mental health, and ethnic identity.

  • Pitch: Should you try varying you speaking tone? Monotone delivery can make paying attention more difficult.

  • Speech refinement: provides suggestions on better grammar and usage.

View feedback details 

Your Meeting Coach report will appear on-screen after the meeting with an option to save it for future reference.

  • You can select a category on the left to view details on your delivery.

  • The report will also be available to view and download on the Details tab of the meeting event in your calendar.
