A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words …

(Over committed, with an inability to say “no”)

Not every illustration and cartoon has to be funny.  Sometimes the message is so difficult that just a touch of humor (or sugar) makes the medicine go down easier.

Perhaps your message is complicated and you’ve noticed your audience stumbling over a particular point or subject matter.  Perhaps an illustration is needed to help those attendees visualize the concept more clearly.

If your message is important enough for you to devote your time and energy to delivering it, then you will want to pay attention to the high number of individuals who are visual learners.

Visual learners comprehend and remember information that they see – not necessarily hear.  While they are listening, they are searching for visual clues to comprehend and understand what they are learning. Body gestures, facial expressions, physical examples and demonstrations of what you are communicating will help aid your visual learning audience.  Utilizing charts, illustrations, flowcharts, cartoons and illustrations enhance and make clear your message and information.
