Visual Thinking – How to transform the way you think, communicate and influence with presentations
Presentations are our most valuable business tool today. In Visual Thinking, Emma Bannister helps you (and your organization) to write, design and deliver a powerful presentation that influences your audience to act.
Presentations are our default way of communicating professional, business and corporate information and ideas.
Yet we’re getting them all wrong.
Our most important and urgent messages stay trapped; hidden behind seriously bad-designed slides and long complex paragraphs of information.
These messages could have made a difference in the world: secured buy-in from your team on a new vision, won a multi-million dollar contract or built awareness around a life-changing new product. But instead they go unheard, unseen, and not understood – until now.
This visual step-by-step guide will help you transform a poor presentation into a powerful one in five simple steps:
- Identify your purpose and main message
- Brainstorm your ideas
- Structure your presentation
- Design your content
- Deliver and share for greater impact in the world.
It’s time to rethink how you present information and learn to communicate visually.
Emma Bannister grew up in a small town north of London designing presentations for banks that traded in high standards and fast deadlines. Their expectations ignited her ambition, leading her to bigger and bluer skies in Australia in 2002.
Knowing intelligent visuals packed a powerful punch, Emma took her passion for presentations one step further, launching Presentation Studio from her kitchen table in 2006.
Fast-forward a decade: Presentation Studio has grown to over 30 staff – all equally passionate about presentations and their belief that storytelling can transform the way people and companies communicate, for good.
Presentation Studio is now APAC’s largest presentation communication agency, and Emma is a regular media commentator on how we can transform the culture of communications, one slide at a time.
This is her first (but not last) book.
