The Special Sauce for Your Presentation Masterpiece (Comparisons)
7 days ago
I like to think of myself as a pretty good speaker and writer. I always hated English class in high school and college, though. So, I always got confused between what was a metaphor, what was a simile, and what was an analogy. To me, these parts of speech were so similar, that I didn’t really see a lot of difference in them. (Still don’t, by the way.) However, these often confused parts of speech are the special sauce to really great presentation burgers. If you use them just right, these items will be like adding the perfect piece of jewelry to a formal dress. They will take a speech that is already pretty good, and make it exceptional.
Five Ways to Use Similes, Metaphors, and Analogies to Add Flavor to Your Presentations.
1) Attention Getting Titles (and Bullets).
2) Add Humor to Dry Presentations.
3) A Single Comparison Developed Throughout the Presentation.
4) Use them with Other Evidence to Clarify Content.
5) Make Technical Content More Easily Understood.
