A sharper image

Fellow speaker,

Presentation Coach Jerry Weissman suggests in your presentations with image animation you:
  • Move images in left to right - this is the normal way Western audiences read
  • Express the action in your message - for example, if revenue is going up, move the arrow image up; if revenue is going down, move the arrow image down
  • Pause - when using animated images, stop and wait for all the animation to finish before speaking - this will ensure that the audience's attention has fully returned from the slide to you
