Brain-Friendly Slides

Do you or your team use slides in presentations?

How important is it that the slides do not distract your audience from what you say?

Surely you would agree that it’s a must.

Because if your visuals distract from your verbal message and storytelling, you impair your own ability to sell your idea, product or service, to advance your career and to grow your business.

Yet, the vast majority of all slides does exactly that. Even the vast majority of professionally designed, high-end corporate slides. And neither the audience, nor the speaker are aware of the distraction.

So how do we know?

Because we measure it. Regularly.

And the results are the same irrespective of the industry, the audience’s background, age, gender and the continent.

70-90% of audiences do not register full sentences presenters says due to how slides are typically used in the corporate world nowadays.

Why? Because the slides most speakers use are not brain-friendly. They are not created by taking into account how our brains process visual and verbal information when they reach us at the same time, which is what happens in presentations. In other words, they neglect the neuroscience.

How do Brain-Friendly Slides help you overcome this issue?

By adding neuroscience to how you design and deliver presentations with slides. By helping you feel the science, rather than just explain it. And by keeping the workshop highly practical and applicable to your everyday presentations.

By the end of this engaging and transformational slide design journey, you will

  • feel how much the prevalent use of slides distracts from the verbal message (this will set the ground for transforming how you approach slides, forever)
  • understand Presentation Mathematics — the cornerstone of Brain-Friendly Slides and Brain-Friendly Delivery
  • learn how to use all the design elements (colours, font size, pictures, etc) that go into a slide in a brain-friendly way and why how they are used in most slides is not brain friendly (the right way is counterintuitive)
  • critique slides, including professionally designed, high-end corporate ones; see why they are not brain friendly and how to improve them
  • design your own Brain-Friendly Slides
  • learn what makes Brain-Friendly Delivery (Brain-Friendly Slides reach their full potential only when delivered the right way)
  • learn how to deliver graphs, tables and charts, which are the most distracting from the verbal message, in a brain-friendly way
  • deliver your own Brain-Friendly Slides in a brain-friendly way

Irrespective whether you work in sales, IT, finance, engineering, marketing or any other field, Brain-Friendly Slides will equip you with the core neuroscience-based principles for creating slides that will help you sell your ideas, products and services better, grow your business and advance your career.

Join us to take your presentations, business and career to the next level!

Akos Gerold & Justine Arena

As a child, Ákos fell in love with stories while being read to. After he got his first camera, the cameraman father of a friend introduced him to visual storytelling. Now, he helps you grow your business and sell your ideas, products and services by combining verbal and visual storytelling into top-notch presentations.

Ákos divides his time between Europe and Brazil, consulting for, training and mentoring corporate and individual clients in how to reach minds and improve bottom lines. He does this in English, German, Hungarian, Serbian and soon in Portuguese too.
