As is often the case when you are looking for something, you come across another idea. Here is an idea that may be of interest to you when you want to create a storyboard for your next writing, presentation, or meeting at the office. It’s called, “Talk to Inform – Visual Aid Mate.” [I am not the author and unfortunately, this color visual aid shows no company name or copyright information.]
It consists of 10 boxes printed on legal size paper, landscape print setting. Talking to Inform not only requires a Subject, but the Importance of the Benefit to your audience as well as an Outline of how you are going spend the audience’s valuable time during your Talk on the Subject. [Boxes 1 through 3]
Boxes 4 through 8 contain the Body of the Talk that may contain your personal experiences, expert opinions, analogies, statistics, facts and examples of how your Subject Matter relates to the audience. Boxes 9 and 10 represent how you Recap and Confirm the Benefit to the audience. So completing these 10 boxes and you’re done!
We all look for ways to streamline our work flow and I hope this brief idea is helpful to you when you need a self-management tool. Have a great week in your career!
