  • Visuals increase persuasion – 75% of what we learn comes to us visually. Great visuals are attention grabbers.Visuals increase retention. Listeners may forget a speaker’s words within minutes of leaving the presentation but they can remember a picture – in detail – weeks later.Simplify concepts – visuals make information easy to digest.
  • 1) Practice until you’re supremely confident. You can’t over-practice. Every time you practice you’ll find something to improve. (LAD)2) Rehearse out loud. Silent practice never works because when you rehearse in silence you never make a mistake. (LAD)3) Seek feedback. After two or three practice sessions alone, ask a friend or colleague for feedback. (LAD)4) Videotape your address. It’s the best way to observe your vocal and physical mannerisms and your use of technology. (LAD)
