Designing for Visual Efficiency: Redux

One really cool benefit of working at BMO is our ‘Institute for Learning’ the home for our corporate training and major events in the North end of the city. Iwas invited to come up there yesterday and give my “Designing for Visual Efficiency Talk” to the staff there as well as with staff at our locations in Chicago and Milwaukee all in all there were about 40 in the room and an additional 100 or so online.

As we were using a special Virtual CLassroom app, and I had to make my 90minute presentation fit into 45 minutes, I had to do some redesign to my deck so I made a clean start and rebuilt it almost from scratch. (I was never super thrilled with how the first deck turned out either) – Working with this content has been an interesting experience as I’ve now packaged it as a 90 minute talk, a 45 minute talk and a 5 minute Ignite – it’s actually been really good practice for developing story and learning where/what to cut. 

Here’s the deck I delivered:

I’ve also included suggested reading materials and will add any other information to the entry on my new work portfolio site where you find my latest Designing for Visual Efficiency post.
Following the presentation I had about 20 minutes to take questions from the audience – they had some great questions and everyone seemed really engaged. I’ve yet to get the formal feedback but anecdotally it seemed like it went really well.
