What it is?

This post I’m doing is about my visual-aid. I am sorry but I don’t know how to put picture on this or I would. Anyway my visual aid is to be honest just plain weird, but I wanted something that showed how I see things. In this weird visual aid, depending on how you look at it, it can be three different things.

The first thing it could be is a heart. The heart represents the connection that needs to be made with the audience. The connection that is made in this way has to be something deep down. Something that strikes a chord in their hearts. To make them feel something powerful.

The second thing that you see is an eye. The eye represents eye contact that you can use to connect with your audience. This is a very good technique. This technique is used to make your speech personal. when you look someone in the eye then they feel like you’re talking directly to them. This is very good because then the listener will usually be able to hear you claim or your story or your speech better.

The third and final thing is a smile. The smile represents, in my personal opinion is the best technique you can use and it is exactly like it sounds like. The smile literally represents the smiles. Getting your audience to smile is one of the best  ways to communicate with them it drops their guard and lets you share your idea very easily. That and it make the speech more pleasurable for you and your audience.

This is why I decided to use this kind of visual aid. It is creative, it is different, it is helpful, and more importantly it’s mine.
