Two days ago while teaching a technology class to a room full of Realtors, one rolled up when we were finished and said, I really liked your slides. The visuals were great and REALLY anchored the points you were making. BOOM. Mission accomplished.
Anyone doing any kind of a presentation for whomever, MUST understand the power of the visual. The experts tell us that 83% of effective learning is visual. At 3M they found that a picture is processed 60,000 times faster than a word. And, One picture is worth a thousand words said…. Somebody.
What’s the point? Understand that a sales presentation is also a learning experience for the potential customer. Really? Yep, and the lesson to be learned is to hire me.
Bullets don’t kill people, presenters with bullets kill people.
