Presentation visual that's a sweet treat

Check out this fact sheet from the Pew Campaign for Fuel Efficiency. (Thanks to No Impact Man for the original post.)

As a PowerPoint slide, this would have too much going on, but as a model for how to create an interesting visual or handout, take note. This handout about the Auto Lobby Bill on Fuel Economy was delivered, along with candy, to members of Congress to coincide with Halloween.

If you absolutely must use graphs or charts in your presentation, think about how you might do something unique to represent your data.

Here are a couple I've shown you recently, which are presentations dominated by data but still compelling to watch.

As always, the data and visuals should be secondary, and an enhancement to the presenter and the message.

But if your visuals can complement your talk in a way that helps the audience grasp your point instead of hinders them from understanding (or puts them to sleep), and is entertaining as well, then you've got a winner.

Are you an entrepreneur or professional who's looking for better results from your speaking? Are you hoping to build credibility and visibility for your business or cause?
