Isn’t it also obvious that a picture has more impact than the printed word.
I am still seeing presenters putting their script or thought joggers on powerpoint and pretending that it is for the audience’s benefit.
The power of the graphic or picture is in reinforcing what the presenter is saying. It is meant to make the point or message stick. One picture can remind people of a disaster. The word disaster won’t.
It is also important to use your own pictures. Take photos to reinforce your message. Use other means of memory jogging rather than putting your notes on the screen for all to see.
Metaphors are to narrative what pictures are to speaking. Your hand out notes can contain words alone.Your speaking will need support from stories, examples, gesture, music….and graphic pictures. A picture contains many more than a thousand words. Your creativity will show with your choice of compelling images.
