Designing Presentation Visuals Think of Your Listeners Listening is much more difficult than reading o "Listeners" listen somewhere between 25% and 50% of the time Information must be taken in "on the fly" with no backtracking o Short-term memory holds only 5 to 7 points o People remember only 10% of what they hear versus 50% of what they read If your audience only listens only part of the time and remembers only 10% of what they hear, then your "window" of communication is around 2.5% to 5.0% of your total presentation time! Therefore: Pity your poor listeners! Do everything you can to help your listeners to listen and remember. Design to Help People Listen 1. Organize - provide structure and framework for the data you will present o provide a " jigsaw puzzle boxtop " for listeners to organize and reconstruct your verbal message o list points to be covered and provide a " road map " of how you will get there 2. Illustrate - help listeners to visualize - convert data to information
