Win Over Text: Why Project Managers Should Become Better Visual Storytellers  

Communication is changing. In the past 15 years, the sharing of images in media -newspapers, online media, websites, social media - has grown massively. And this trend, which communication professionals call the "visual turn", does not stop at corporate and internal communication. It does not stop at team and project communication. We are becoming increasingly accustomed to “visual communication” and for the next generation, Generation Z, it’s a matter of course to use icons, emojis, infographics, videos more than text to exchange and express ideas. 

Even the quality of images is changing. PowerPoint presentations using standard stock footage or reports illustrated with standard symbols are attracting less attention. In contrast, a new style of images and visuals is more successful, called “Visual Storytelling”.

This webinar will give you an introduction into Visual Storytelling and make you familiar with this "visual language". Learn which criteria are important to find and select outstanding images and visuals that guarantee attention for your topic and tell a better story.

We invite you to become visual storytellers, thus significantly improving your team and project communication, being more attractive and more effective.

What you learn in detail:
- The benefits of visual communication - in team and project communication
- Basic knowledge on storytelling as a rhetoric technique and leadership skill
- Criteria to identify authentic and strong images 
- Tips and tricks to find and select best visuals to support your story
