1 Quote to reflect on

“The more you leave out, the more you highlight what you leave in.”

—Henry Green

When you've analyzed all that data, you have so much to share. But what is your audience interested in?

Brevity is powerful. Communicating your insights concisely helps to make your message more understandable, more persuasive, and more impactful.

How do you do it?

I often use the below model in my training.

Before you start creating your presentation, write down:

What is your key message in 1 sentence?

This helps you decide what to leave out —

So that you can highlight more of what you leave in.
