Last Updated on August 28, 2020 by Anastasia

The next steps and follow-up concept frequently appears over various types of presentations, for example, business update meetings with your team or project planning gathering. In this blog, you can find visual metaphors expressing ideas of illustrating the next step concept, which you can add to slides and make them look attractive.

After planning a project what will be your next step? Signing a contract, getting an interview appointment or gathering a team, perhaps. Each properly facilitated meeting should be finished with a follow-up part, sharing responsibilities, setting next actions. 

Let’s illustrate this important part of the presentation by some catchy visual symbols we have designed.
