Using Visual Aids
One day you go in to work for an impromptu all staff meeting where your seated around a long conference table. Once everyone arrives and is settled you see an easel up front with a man in a suit standing close at hand. He starts his presentation by saying that he is here to broaden marketing horizons. After his initial introduction he dives right in by unveiling his first graph on the easel. Once he has clarified his supporting materials from the graph, for where current marketing lies and where it can soar, he sheds off the page to reveal yet another chart, although this time it is a pie chart. This continues over the course of the hour. By the end of his presentation you are unable to discern what information went with which chart or graph. In fact there were so many that you spent the better part of the second half looking at passerby’s outside the window.
By a slight miscalculation the gentlemen who had been presenting lost his audience’s attention do to the dry repetitive nature of his visual aids. If he has perchance exchanged some of his graphs for videos or testimonies to support his statements he may have kept hold of his demographics attention. After all visual aids should be as uncomplicated and engaging as possible (Lucas, 2015).
In my persuasive speech I am planning on using a couple visual aids. The one I am most concerned about getting correct is various yoga positions with their respective names in English and Hindi. Though I feel it is important to associate each pose with its proper name, I am concerned that by giving both the English and Hindi versions of the pose name it may be too much information. I believe that if I am able to focus on a maximum of 3 poses I may be able to include the image and both versions of the name before it all starts to sound like one long unintelligible phrase. After all isn’t the point of any speech to have your audience remember your pertinent supporting information rather than it all blurring together.
