We live in a scattered, ADHD world. One of the better ways to get your audiences’ attention is to give them a task, something to puzzle through that will get them thinking. It doesn’t need to be very difficult, but it does need to engage them.
O. Too often a presenter adds to the every day clutter by failing to invite the audience to participate. One way to do that is to give your audience a small visual task. This photo would be an excellent way to illustrate or deepen a discussion on focus. In this photo, the foreground is busy, but blurred and the eye is drawn through the off-center hole to a view that is in sharp focus. In contrast to the hard, rough, monochrome colo of the foreground stone, the focussed image in the back is alive with details and and information. If you talk abstractly about the need to find focus with this image on the screen, your audience will need to think about why they are looking at it. They will unravel it quickly, but even the smallest challenge to an audience deepens connection and memory.
