Video Transcript: They say that image is everything. If you’re hosting a seminar, you typically are spending a good amount of marketing dollars just to fill the room. Once there, it’s always wise to remember two key components of the pitch: Number one: Have visual representation. If you plan on just getting on the stage and not providing visual aids, you’re missing out on maximizing impact. Why? Because 83% of what we learn as humans is done visually. Number two: Invest in a great PowerPoint presentation. Too often we see seminars being held with awful bullet-pointed clip art slides. The speaker may as well have just shown up in flip-flops, shorts, and a tank top, because that’s the image that is left with the audience of himself, the brand, and his organization.
