Great presentation skills include skillful use of visual aids.
Using black screens not visual slides when speaking is one of the best presentation skills tips.
Executive Presence is more than leadership ability…
It is multi-faceted
Hello and welcome to this week’s EP tip
Great leaders know not to have a slide on the screen when they talk
They know that our eyes trump our ears
That means if they leave a slide on the screen
While they’re talking
The audience is looking at the visual
Not listening to what is being said
Visuals win out each and every time
Use visuals as a true aid
Have a ‘black’ slide displayed whenever you speak
Describe what’s about to be seen
Then…reveal the slide…don’t speak over it
Let the audience think about what you just said
And absorb how the visual supports you
A wise man once said
A picture is worth a thousand words
But a picture of a word is just that…
A picture of a word.
Here’s the link to a great video that shows
How visuals can overwhelm even a TED Talk
