If you’re not the artistic type, coming up with visual aids for your business presentation can be a nightmare. But there’s a wide range of “good” visuals, from simple posters to complex videos, that can help make your presentation stand out. After all, nobody wants to sit there and hear you speak for hours with nothing to else to look at, right?
A simple speech is a great way to deliver a message, but it won’t necessary make it stand out. Presenting information with visuals can enhance any presentation and help to keep the audience’s attention. Some of the most effective ways to incorporate visual aids include PowerPoints, flip charts and posters.
With hundreds of offerings including font, audio and images this is a great way to put together some visuals in an organized manner. There are however, a few things you should remember when creating a PowerPoint:
- Just because there are hundreds of fonts, doesn’t mean you should use them all. Throwing in too many whacky ones can throw off the audience, so keep it consistent.
- Choose font colors and backgrounds carefully. Colors like red and green can be difficult to see.
- Don’t put too much information on the slides. Highlight 5 points at maximum and elaborate on them.
Having a meeting that involves brainstorming ideas? Flip charts are the perfect way to organize your co-workers’ thoughts. Make sure to use a dark marker and write big enough so somebody thats 8 feet away will have no problem reading your notes.
Believe it or not, something as simple as a poster can help the audience remember a key point. You can keep it simple by adding a few graphics and some text or go all out and have it professionally printed and laminated. Just stay away from posters that are too busy and stick with something that catches the eye.
