You have undoubtedly heard the phrase, “A picture is worth a thousand words.” Think about what impact those pictures have once they are put back-to-back with other pictures – it is like pictures on steroids. That is exactly what you get when you use videos in presentations during workshops, seminars, team meetings, conferences, coaching sessions, or anywhere else you are trying to educate or enlighten others.
Although it is easy to transition from a PowerPoint or other media to revert to a video it is more professional to embed the video seamlessly into your presentation. It is relatively easy to do.
Just add a new slide (CNTL-M) and you will see several options. Hover over them until you find the one that says “insert video”. Typically, it is the last icon, wo if you are the type to start at the end and work forward you will find it quickly.
When you click on it a menu pops pen that will allow you to add a video from your computer or from YouTube or similar service. If you have an embed code for your video, just paste it in where prompted.
Adding videos will invoke the use of another sensory point to make your presentation more interesting and memorable.
