PowerPoint Tip: Use pictures and images if you want your information remembered. According to molecular biologist John Medina, our ability to remember images is one of our greatest strengths. “We are incredible at remembering pictures,” he writes. “Hear a piece of information, and three days later you’ll remember 10% of it. Add a picture and you’ll remember 65%.”
Relate your images and pictures directly to the text and make sure they are relevant. For example, if you are discussing money, use pictures like the ones below. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org for support on designing compelling presentations.
