As humans we find stories incredibly compelling, but why is that? And how can we make sure we're infusing storytelling in our presentations to keep our audiences engaged and invested? Read on to find out the rest of the story!
We live in a world where there is already an overload of data and information, with a constant stream of statistics and surveys being produced, all designed to persuade us to change our behaviour, our buying habits, or our views. The need for infographics has never been greater.
But what is an infographic? An infographic is a way to present information, data and knowledge in a visual manner. Picture the scene – someone gives you a report on how house prices and buying habits have developed in the last 50 years. Imagine reading number after number – ‘56% says this…’, in ‘1987 23% of 16-25 thought this…’ – at the end of one page of text you’re absolutely lost at sea with no hope of remembering what’s important, or why is matters to you.
But with infographics, that dense data is represented visually. This has a two-fold benefit: not only does it make the information easier to digest and understand because you can process concrete things, but it makes it far more memorable than a page of text would be. Infographics help keep your audience engaged and can be a great tool to help promote and advertise your brand.

And there are some great uses for infographics – everything from giving your sales reps a cheat sheet on all your key selling points, to stylish leave-behinds for your prospects, even to key facts and figures to put on social media.

Those of us who are seasoned presentation creators can easily be tempted to dismiss Prezi as a one trick pony, great for the novelty value but not for much else. Well, here at BrightCarbon we like a challenge, so we set about exploring what Prezi can really do.
Choosing a presentation design agency is a lot harder than buying a product. With presentation design services, you don’t know what you’re going to get until the project is nearly finished. What you get from the studio isn’t the exact same thing as what any other company ends up with. So how do you choose the right business presentation design firm for your presentation work?
Email doesn’t do justice to how thrilled I am with this work - it’s beyond all expectations so a huge, huge, thanks!!!Luke Kershaw SquareTrade
