I'm 99.99% sure the way you're adding visuals to your slides is wasting time.

...And I'm 80.57% sure you're putting yourself at risk for copyright violations because of how you search for images (i.e., Google).

#CYVD -- an email course -- is a free welcome gift to the Communication Cafe members. 

The Communication Cafe is my email list of "espresso shots" where I deliver (short) helpful or entertaining emails about effective & creative communication--tailored to women academics, scientists, evaluators, and researchers. Cafe emails include invitations to participate in my free workshops or bootcamps/retreats; access to free online courses or other resources; behind-the-scenes info about my new comics, blogs or YouTube videos; and invitations to participate in paid professional development opportunities. 

Oh, and yes: it's totally FREE to join the Communication Cafe!

I created this FREE email course welcome gift for Communication Cafe members because you've internalized some myths:

>> All the good photos cost MONEY.

>> GOOGLE IMAGES is the quickest and easiest way to find photos.

>> It's fine to SEARCH FOR IMAGES AS YOU GO ALONG, switching back and forth between the slide text & finding a picture.

>> Stock photos are super CHEESY or don't work for YOUR UNIQUE topic.

>> It takes a LONG TIME to find good images.

>> You have to be CREATIVE or a GRAPHIC DESIGNER to know how to use visuals.


*laughs confidently* That's just what the stress demons want you to believe. None of it is true.

You don't get there using Google Images or by searching for one image at a time.
