You’ve heard countless times that a picture is worth a thousand words. In the mysterious inner world of the brain, pictures actually do take primacy over words. But how often have you actually taken that knowledge and opted for a picture instead of a paragraph to create powerful messages for your organization? Perhaps it’s time to shift from thinking “how can I say this best?” to “how can I show this best?” Resource Media’s Liz Banse will share the latest research about how the brain processes images and how you can apply that knowledge to your work. She’ll also share case studies featuring extraordinary visual storytelling and give you 10 tips for making your communications more visual and effective.
