Public Speaking Course:
Visuals: FILL 'EM UP
In your public speaking course you will learn that using visuals means
having drawings and pictures to show during your presentation.
The best way to project a photo or
other image during your presentation is by filling up the slide or overhead
completely with the image.
This does NOT mean you should fill the projection screen with lots of text!
This tip is only helpful when applied to images. For example, you take
a picture of a funny sign on a pole. The sign is only about 12 inches
tall. If you zoom in on the sign so that it fills the entire frame, it will
have a much
greater impact on the audience than if you took the picture farther
The same picture can have a much greater impact on your audience if
you frame it completely. When practicing in your public speaking course,
don't forget the impact of your visuals during your presentation. It
can really help to keep the audience awake.
