Pictures show you doing what you do. So take along your digital camera and arrange for photos of you in action: helping a learner, leading a discussion or in full voice in front of the class holding up the rubber chicken or some other more relevant prop. Always include pictures. This provides social proof that you are a real educator, effective and “out there.” Before I go out to my next lecture, I’ll get that digital camera and have my apprentice take photos. Anyone can claim to be a speaker, but with pictures of you in front of audiences, it reinforces what you do. There’s no doubt.
