What you say and what you show

In technology and business we often use many words and complex sentences to make (fundamentally) simple statements. Many times, a well thought visual can be much more effective to present and convey information in a clear and compelling way. And furthermore, using pictures in your presentation is also the ideal remedy to prevent you from reading your slides out loud.

Below are a few examples of how an image can help you present your message simple and sweet, and make what you show complementary to what you say.

What you say:

“Do you want a small investment and a high return? You can get started in this business with a limited amount of money. You’ll gain back a multiple of your investment and start profiting in no time.”

What you show:

What you say:

“Service providers are migrating from distinct networks for voice, data and video services to a single broadband infrastructure based upon the Internet Protocol. Moving to an all-IP network is key to agile and cost-effective service creation, deployment and operations.”

What you show:

What you say:

“One of our goals is to transform the company. From a heavy and hierarchical organization to a lighter and flatter one. From a control driven culture to a self-regulating community adhering to a common code of conduct.”

What you show:

It’s maybe an old wisdom, but still so true: a picture tells more than a thousand words!
