This might sound like an existential dilemma, but how many times have you gone through your carefully prepared PowerPoint presentation and wondered: How do I put some life into these slides? How do I make the content pop out and engage the audience?
Engaging the audience is the touchstone for every presenter. You have to involve the viewers, make them interested in what you’re presenting. There are a number of tried and tested ways to solve this problem. You can put in a visually appealing color scheme, some razzle dazzle animation, visual effects, sounds and videos. You could also just add a human element to your slides by using people illustrations.
Now, we know that not everyone is a Norman Rockwell, capable of doing jaw-dropping illustrations of human beings. That’s why 24point0 has created a range of graphics that capture human emotions and gestures.
24point0’s people illustrations, cartoons and graphics have the ability to say what usually takes a whole paragraph of expressive prose. For example, if you need to show that a certain city in Japan becoming a key player in the growth of your company, just combine a figure from 24point0’s deck of Business Women Presenter Illustration and a Map of Japan.
You can change the orientation of the figure by flipping/rotating it and scale it to suit as well. You can change the colors of the map or even brighten up the dress of the illustrated person to suit your presentation template.
You needn’t always go for a detailed illustration of a business person to put your point across. A simple stick figure drawing such as 24point0‘s eloquent PointPeople illustrations can do the job quite well.
These are especially useful when having to explain difficult concepts such as obvious and hidden risks that have to be surmounted in an operational change. To show the risks (hidden and apparent), the Iceberg diagram from 24point0 serves as the perfect visual shorthand.
Add the climber from the PointPeople deck and you’ve got a visualization that speaks volumes. You can separate the climbers by ungrouping the illustration and copying and pasting just one climbing PointPeople figure onto the Iceberg. Scale up or down as you wish and you can change the colors too!
24point0’s graphics are also quite versatile. If you need a representation of just a mountain and a figure climbing the side to illustrate a scenario, then just remove the blue background and waterline to change the graphic.
24point0‘s people graphics can animate any dry or boring business diagram. If you’re presenting a review of the company or project team’s annual performance, you’ll need ta Performance Char handy to encapsulate all the data in a neat package.
And if the performance is excellent and you wish to convey this to your audience, just an appreciative Businessmen Presenter illustration to the slide!
You can also change the background color to suit your PPT template.
Remember, the key to connecting with your audience is very often adding the human element to your PPT content.
