This the third episode of a trilogy on enjoying pitching, and today we are focussing on using imagery so that you can enjoy pitching. We’re talking to Crocodile Wrestler Martin Barnes about how essential visuals are to getting your message across – they are not a luxury and shouldn’t be an afterthought. We cover everything from idea showers, to processing your ideas, wire-framing and then creating your pitch.
Key takeaways include:
- A pitch or presentation is not a brochure!
- Images should amplify your message without words;
- It’s easier to remember key points with good visuals;
- Slide design is easy when you know what you want to say;
- If you have boring slides, you will probably come across as boring.
Listen in to hear where Martin gets his best images from, and where you can find them too. Martin is on a mission to help everyone to enjoy pitching, and this is a fun session with loads more brilliant insights in using images to give you confidence next time you pitch.
