About VISUAL LANGUAGE Methods
Visual Language is a presentation style built around the same PowerPoint software you already know. In fact, you’ll still make and display presentations just like always—yet, with two big differences. From now on, those boring bullet points are a thing of the past. You’ll replace them with more visually stimulating and meaningful forms of content such as pictures, video clips, animations, shape graphics and other kinds of media. We’ll show you how to become a pro at this kind of visual communication, regardless of your current skill levels. SEE IT IN ACTION.
The second big difference is that while speaking you’ll access needed topics via hyperlinks in presentations, rather than merely scrolling through a single, long, linear slide show. In other words, PowerPoint won’t be your task master in the future, dictating which slides must come next. Any slides can come next—and any slide show in your entire collection, for that matter, even if there are hundreds from which to choose.
Think of this presentation style as similar to a modern-day cafe conversation. Everyone today has a laptop, smart phone, or tablet, right? We all can show video clips, pictures, and documents spontaneously during a conversation with a tap or click. No matter which direction a conversation takes, we quickly adjust—both verbally and visually—to keep participation relevant and interesting. That’s the way natural communication happens these days. Why should our PowerPoint presentations be any different?
Why not have the same flexibility in your performances to change the direction of a talk, show something unexpected, respond to a random question with a visual example, tailor the message to a particular group, or adjust timing by ignoring optional content links? You will have those options, and more.
The visual language approach gives you total control over high quality content, to engage viewers and help them remember details. It’s still 100% PowerPoint, yet at a level most speakers never imagine possible.
