Imagine yourself sitting on a chair and watching a presentation without any visuals. You’re looking at the speaker and nothing more. This person is saying something, but after some time you feel bored and you’re almost falling asleep. This situation is easy to imagine because we all face boring meetings in our lives. Let’s try to look at the reasons why we need visualization and how to make our presentations fun and interesting for the visitors.
The 3 awesome tips which you should consider while doing a presentation. They are as follows
1) Make it look dynamic:If the picture is changing from time to time, you will never get bored by the presentation. But if you change the visuals as if you are surfing channels on TV, it will be the worst presentation in your life. Do not overdo it. All depends on the topic you want to present and the audience. However, we advise you to use stock photos and PowerPoint diagram templates to make the preparation easier and faster.
If you have any figures, dates, calculations, visualize them. Don’t worry if you have only a few words on the presentation screen. Nowadays, people tend to perceive visuals much better than reading something. That’s why most of us watch TV and don’t listen to the radio so often.
2) Make it sound dynamicIf you are used to monotonous speaking, it’s time to change your habits. If you don’t know how, we’ll prompt you. You should pay attention to the rhythm and the tempo of your speech. To make it simple, just imagine yourself a rapper and record your speaking. Try to pronounce words distinctly, but do not stress more than three words in one sentence. It will sound unnatural if you do, and if you don’t stress anything, it will sound too monotonous.
3) What visuals to use?There are several types of visual you can use. Let’s call them tangible and intangible ones. The tangible visuals include any pens, pencils, chairs, tables, pieces of paper, glass, stones and so on. It can be anything that you can tough with hands. It can be very useful and fun to give an unusual object to the listeners and ask questions about it.
The intangible things are everything that you show on the screen. We can use photos, videos, cliparts, animations, diagrams, charts and so on. You can use this type of visuals on every presentation no matter what you are speaking about. Let’s consider a few examples. If you are speaking about food for cats, you can show poor, thin homeless animals at first. Then you can show how your food has changed the lives of these cuties and at the end you will show real cats that people can pat and make sure you’re not lying.
