Make all your presentations come alive through the masterful use of flip charts! Despite all the razzle-dazzle technology around, there’s still no more lively, informative, and audience-friendly way to make an impact than with flip charts. But using flip charts well is a skill that must be developed. In this comprehensive handbook, professional trainer and communications expert Robert Lucas explains the basic design principles and techniques that professionals use to make impressive flip charts–the simple “tricks of the trade” that make an impact all the way to the back of the room. In addition to tips on drawing and displaying great-looking flip charts, Lucas explains how flip charts can make you a better facilitator. Over two dozen creative flip-chart-based group activities are included to help you lead a brainstorming, teambuilding, or problem-solving session. Each activity uses flip charts to draw out the best ideas and creative thinking from your group. For presenters who want to jazz up their “text only” flip charts, but don’t know how to draw, dozens of ready-to-copy flip chart graphics, icons, and templates make it easy to create something special with minimal effort. You’ll learn how to use lettering in an attractive and impactful way; understand spacing, use color and creative fonts. The Big Book of Flip Charts is the ultimate reference guide for flipcharts, covering not just writing and displaying techniques but layout and graphics, as well as flip chart facilitation activities.
