Businesses are using more and more visual content in their marketing, social media campaigns, and presentations. But have you ever considered the power of your visuals? Are the visuals you are selecting in line with current trends? Have you considered how the increasing focus on diversity and inclusion (D&I) might influence your choices?
In this seminar, Kumiko Shimamoto, head of Getty Images in Japan, will introduce some of the latest trends in visual content and talk about how far D&I has progressed in terms of the content used by businesses around the world.
This will be followed by a fireside chat with Garr Reynolds, author of the Presentation Zen series.
