Show don’t tell

Ok, you’ve heard this before, but how do you do it? The answer isn’t PowerPoint!

The first level of “show” is visual: photos, drawings, diagrams, flow charts, video, scale models, animations, simulations, demos.

The second level of “show” is hands-on: prototype or product (could even be a competitor’s product if your’s isn’t ready)

Obviously, it’s show and tell, but as they say “actions speak louder than words” and “a picture is worth a thousand words”, so budget the words that accompany what you are showing.

And have fun!
