The audience might feel a little bit like they just stepped out of a roller coaster after you showed them your 30 images in 10 minutes presentation. Some suggestions to calm things down:
  • Not every concept needs a supporting image. "We're running out of time" [click - image of a time bomb ticking away]. "We're under pressure" [click - Atlas lifting the globe on his shoulders]. "It's either" [click - A pot of gold] or "the end" [click - image of the Grand Canyon]. A data chart showing a rapid decline in sales over the past month will do if you want to create a sense of urgency...
  • Consider taking the color out of your images. Black and white images, or images with a monochrome overlay look more in harmony with a presentation's color scheme.
