Visual aids add dash to your speech

People tend to remember what they see, not what they hear. That’s why you should lace your presentations with appealing graphics. Such images will stay with your audience well after your words fade.

Slides. Only use slides that add to your spoken points. If they merely restate your remarks, you’ll bore people. Test: If reading the text from your slides summarizes your speech, you’re in trouble.

Never overload a slide with too much information. If viewers’ eyes must dart around a dense thicket of data, you will lose them. Limit each slide to three easy-to-see visual elements.

Photos are one of the most underused techniques to enhance a speech. Blow-up images of employees at work can add warmth, humor and variety. Example: If you’re describing workplace safety, insert a few photos of employees using machinery correctly.

Props. A great way to grab a group’s attention is to pass around an unfamiliar object. Have them guess its function.
