Over the past five years I have written over 150 articles on this blog, accounting for nearly 70,000 words. If the statement that a picture is worth a thousand words is true, the content of this site could be reduced to, say, a few tens of images and its reading time dramatically shortened.
Studies like the one by David Hyerle show that up to 90 percent of the information that we remember is based on visual impact and, from experience, I know that infographics can make complex information more appealing and better digestible. Providing your audience with compelling handout material that they can share with others, also helps spreading your message and increases the impact of your content.
This gave me an interesting challenge – and a creative way to spend some (tautology alert!) free moments during my summer holidays – in crafting a set of 4 infographics that summarize some of my old compilation posts:
- 7 sins of the speaker (extended version) – posted on September 10, 2015
- The 3 p’s of a professional public presenter (extended version) – posted on December 4, 2015
- 5 elements of a story (and how to use them in a public presentation) – posted on May 28, 2015
- Know your audience (before you start talking) – posted on November 13, 2015
You may download the resulting files by clicking on the image below (or hitting the download tab on top of this page).
If you like my artwork, if you think the infographics are useful, and if you want more of these, please share this post on social media and/or give me a thumbs-up via the “leave a reply” box on this page.
