Involving your audience in a presentation – a great way to make them feel special
20 years ago I sat in a crowded assembly hall with 200 other school children and was told all of the stories from the Bible by a vicar who used images of the Mr Men to represent characters within the stories.
To this day I remember that Mr Happy was Jesus, Mr Tall was God, Mr Greedy was Judas and so on.
I was four years old, desperate to go outside and play in the sunshine, fidgety and easily distracted, yet to this day I still remember every one of the stories that were told and the characters that were within them.
That’s how powerful visual aids can be when public speaking.
