Auckland Branch Event - Storytelling why use pictures to complement your words

As a creative person who bridges IT tech teams and storytelling design, David Leigh is well versed in knowing how easy it is for technical explanations to get lost in translation. In this talk, David will touch on how we can simplify complexity by using storytelling illustrations and pictures to 'connect' with your audience. This session will hopefully leave you with a better understanding of how your audience can be more receptive of your written work if supported by visual communication.
