Webinar - Visual Storytelling with Data and Evidence
Transcript of Webinar - Visual Storytelling with Data and Evidence
“a different perspective is worth 80 IQ points”
Alan Kay, Palo Alto Research Center
Share insights that help your audience
What problem will this help them solve?
How do we want them to think differently, and do things differently, based on our presentation?
How will they evaluate our recommendation - what are
How do they like to receive information?
"Should we just project our bullet points and charts, in a sequence that makes sense to us?"
PARAGRAPH < BULLETS
The S.Co.R.E. Method
Situation: What is this presentation about?
Complication: Their business problem
Resolution: Your contribution to solving it (i.e. your research insight/finding)
Example: An illustration of your contribution in action
Complication: Their most likely objection
Resolution: Your response to their objection
Example: An illustration of your response
TELL A STORY
Repeat, until you've
addressed all likely objections
Whatever information you need to answer those objections is what should be included in your presentation. Every thing else, leave out (or put in the appendix).
"Present my bar charts, pie charts, and line charts..."
"Can't we just put all of these charts on separate slides? We'd be finished!"
Our research findings and insights
Are captured in bullet points
Lots and lots of bullet points
Is this working for you?
Is it working for your audience?
A typical presentation slide
A Big Picture Slide
Show all the Relevant Details
How do you show this on slides?
Research indicates projecting bullet slides and talking at the same time...
It's pretty. But where are the details?
What? How? Who? How much? Where? To Whom? Why?
Death by PowerPoint!
Won't the details make the slide too crowded, too busy?
Extensive research indicates that persuasion requires details
Projectors don't provide sufficient resolution
What technology works best?
Proximity of textual and graphic data increases comprehension (Mayer, 2001).
Pass the squint test
Social aspect of iPad
More detail on each slide
Recent McKinsey study highlighted the social aspect of the iPad as an unexpected but frequent benefit
(Coumau, Desvaux, Korkmaz, and Lenotte, 2010)
e.g. Kalyuga, Chandler, & Swelling (2004)
(Tversky, Morrison, and Betrancourt, 2002)
Cf. Tufte (2001)
Cf. Armstrong (2008)
How do I show all the relevant details without Death by PowerPoint?
Organizing principle - if charts and evidence are the ‘what’ then the overall layout of the slide is the ‘why’ and the ‘how’
