Switch blog 29082014
Did you tune in for the ClickShare webinar yesterday? If so, you’ll have noticed that collaboration isn’t always plain sailing.

To give everyone the chance to join in the best possible circumstances, our experts will re-do the webinar next Tuesday, 2 September at 4PM CET.

Ever heard of the 7%-38%-55% Rule? According to Albert Mehrabian, Professor Emeritus of Psychology at the American UCLA, words only account for 7% of how we interpret a message. Tone of voice (38%) and non-verbal elements (55%) have a much bigger impact on the effectiveness of a dissertation.

Instead of stuffing slides with words, consider whether a picture could convey the same message better.
