But that’s not all, have you ever seen the word “Presentation Speaking” on the Canva Homepage and wondering what it is? It’s Canva’s solution to a problem that people face all the time.

Many people use presentations in webinars these days, or they are part of their website. In essence, today’s presentations are not just confined to the conference room. They have a much larger range.

But presentations on the internet can be scary. But don’t worry because Canva’s speaking presentation can help you. It’s also the right tool when you can’t attend in person or maybe when some other people can’t attend.

This Speaking Presentation is basically a recorded presentation with your video and voice-over. Canva studio makes the task so easy that you can do it with your eyes closed (metaphorically of course).
