Program Description:

Whether you’re giving a presentation to clients, government agencies, judges or jurors, this program will help you design and use visual images to more effectively communicate key messages. In this program, Kerri will address what works and why using common visual examples like maps, timelines, and charts and graphs. Kerri will also share some graphic design basics to help you improve your own visuals (or more effectively to edit those designed by others). Finally, Kerri will discuss strategies for using low- vs. high-tech presentation mediums, and tips for spotting misleading visuals.
