Leave it up long enough for your audience to look it over before you begin talking about it Keep L98L25O0034:JK849K,94:7,:L03.0L83970,L3JZKLO04:,70 talking - 4399,ON949K08.70039,ON949K0,:L03.0 Stand so that the visual aid is to your left and point with your left hand (at the beginning of the sentence) - 3. Practice before your presentation Be comfortable working with the visual aids and equipment - 4. Keep going if something goes wrong with the visual aids or equipment Turn the machine off if necessary and proceed without any visual aids (visuals are aids for the audience, not you, so be prepared to present without them) o Types Of Visual Aids - The type of visual aid you choose depends upon several variables The length of your presentation the available equipment The audience size The type of presentation you will be giving The logistics of the meeting room - 439J09.421479,-O0ZL9K:8L3J43095041;L8:,O,L9784209KL3J30Z - Flipcharts A flipchart is a large pad of paper mounted on an easel and are best used in small, informal groups You can write as you speak or put your points on the flipchart in advance of the meeting Use large letters and use blue or black marker only Leave room between your points and use the four-by-four rule (use no more than four lines and four words per line on any flipchart page) Write only on the top of a page and you can lightly use a pencil to outline your pointsdiagrams Be sure to stand on the correct side (e.g. if right-handed, flipchart should be to your left) Remember the three Ts touch, turn, and talk as you use your visual aids www.notesolution.com
