They say a picture is worth a thousand words.
Share your ideas better by making them visual!
Whiteboard animations share ideas using words, pictures and narration. Research has found that people are more likely to remember information shared in this way (compared to reports and talking head videos).
The animations I make are ‘co-created’, allowing your team to have input into the script development, design and storyboarding. The process includes feedback loops so you can share, test and revise the script and images until you get your message right. The software I use is easy to edit, so your animation can be updated to respond to feedback from your target audience or to add new information.
Animations are a cost effective and GREEN (no printing!) way of sharing ideas. They can be shared in multiple ways: in meetings, by phone, email, or social media reaching people who may have missed out in the past. As animations can be easily edited, they won’t go out of date like a print publication.
Using visual tools in meetings helps people think more creatively, highlights connections between ideas and gives a ‘big picture’ perspective to your discussion.
Visuals can make your meeting more participatory and inclusive: – the image is a ‘work in progress’, giving people the opportunity to keep adding new ideas and creating new connections at any stage (even quietly at the end of a session for people who are shy to speak out, or who need time to process).
Visualising your discussion helps make sure everyone is on the same page at the end of the day.
Infographics are useful for sharing ideas simply and clearly, using words and images.
An infographic can act as visual reminder of a meeting, or the key points of an animation.
