Remember Little Red Riding Hood, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs stories? Memories from childhood strike our mind when we come across these stories. And importantly, we remember these stories from beginning till end. But if somebody asks us about chapter seven from the History book of class 9th, that person immediately appears an enemy to us. That’s the power of the visuals. We can relate ourselves more with visuals rather than plain text. Moreover, it’s a fact that 90% of information transmitted in our brain is visual and visuals are processed faster in brain than text. Well, now you know why you see so many blank faces during your presentations! It’s the plain text that makes your presentation boring.  Text is vanilla. Accept it. However, you can share your important information with your team members without making them feel bored. Just include right visuals with your content instead plain text and you are all set to deliver the best presentation of your life. Here are a few examples to make it simpler for you:-
