Developing, Designing, Delivering: The Case for Powerful and Productive Presentations<br />
For thousands of years we have communicated visually<br />
In today’s world we communicate visually more than any other means<br />
Our brains are wired for visual images<br />
Not only do we process visuals significantly faster than text<br />
The process is even more significant when compared to sound<br />
Similarly we process color differently<br />
Together images and color can also invoke a variety of emotions<br />
So the question is why are so many presentations designed with…<br />
Text Only<br />
Water<br />Water is made up of 2 parts hydrogen and one part oxygen<br />Water can be found in three forms<br />Liquid<br ...
 Low Quality Images or Clip Art<br />
Image Relevance<br />
The human body consists of about 60% water<br />
Or all of the above<br />
Why are so many presentations delivered like…<br />
The Message<br />During the time in which I am reading this to you<br />Your brain is attempting to process my voice<br />...
It is more difficult to process information if it is coming at you both visually and in written form, simultaneously- John...
So the questions we have to ask as presenters and as an audience<br />
If you’re going to read from the slides why are you here?<br />
Are we so used to “Death By Powerpoint” that we see it as normal?<br />
Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication-Leonardo Da Vinci<br />
Water<br />
What is it made of?<br />
It can be found in 3 forms<br />
You have the power to take a different path<br />
Key things to remember<br />
Effective presentations are also good stories<br />
Put yourself in the position of your audience<br />
Develop around a central message or point<br />
Simplicity can lead to greater clarity<br />
Where can you find great images?<br />
