“It’s really difficult to express something clearly and powerfully by writing. It can be done, but not so many of us are talented writers. Instead every one of us can talk, in some standard anyway… Talking is much more powerful way to communicate. You can express your emotions and message forcefully and that is why we always fall in love with great orators such as Martin Luther King and Barack Obama. Even though the numbers and facts aren’t the best we’ve seen on paper, their rhetorics always let us see the light in the darkness. This is also why we created Movenote. We give people an easy way to express their message impressively and effectively. We’ve brought emotions to presentation.”
