The Power of Visual Information

The Speaker Point

Today’s advances in graphic design means we can clarify messages through visual information. For most presenters, who aren’t typically also graphic designers, creating an engaging visual image is the most challenging part of the presentation. Once you come up with at least one interesting idea, then you can convince a young graphic designer to create it for you for a low price (Tip: go to your nearest college or high school, and talk with teachers/professors).

Thoughts On Presenting And Design

I remember watching the guy who designed Bill Gates’ slides. He rarely used the tools inside PowerPoint, rather he’d design the slides in Adobe Photoshop or Illustrator, and import them into PowerPoint as graphics. That’s why Bill Gates’ slides always looked better than average PowerPoint users, but it was very hard and took a very talented graphic designer to do.

On Promoting Books

http://delicious.com/akarrer/prospeaker

Review copies are the least expensive and most effective way to promote books. It is easier to promote one book twice than to write a new book. The secret to successful publishing is not to publish more and more books, but to effectively market those books already published. Bookstores are a lousy place to sell books.

The way to get around this hassle is to play copyright free music which, for use as background music, is just as good.
