Disgusting Visual Aids Don’t Support Your Words

Like to watch them at play, but not on a tatoo

Yes, visual aids will bring your words to life. As a Speech Coach, I have been teaching that for years.

However, not just any visual aid will do. Disgusting ones will distract and even revolt your audience.

Example: The grocery store customer told me he likes dogs. Very fine so far.
Yet then he pulled off his shirt–entirely–and pointed to his two dogs, displayed on a large tattoo on his arm. As you can guess, I would have preferred no visual aid at all.

So when you’re planning a visual aid to amplify your words, be sure you are sensitive to how the audience might react. Stay on the safe side, and you’ll get your meaning across more tastefully.
