Join David Diskin for an in-depth discussion in this video Making the motions, part of PowerPoint Tips and Tricks for Business Presentations.
Presenting to a live audience isn't something most of us do every day and so…the motions of it all--…posture, where you're looking, and what you're doing with your hands--will…take some practice.…Having good control of your body and knowing what it's doing while you're…speaking is a tough trick to master.…You're going to want to avoid slouching, putting your hands in your pockets,…rocking, and anything else that makes you look either lazy or insecure.…How do you solve this?…Well, for starters, look in the mirror and practice.…The gestures that your hands make can help convey the passion and enthusiasm…that I've been discussing through the entire course.…
Your hands can emphasize specific words and give your audience clues to…accompany the tone and inflection in your voice. Just don't overdo it.…And at the same time, watch out for idle hands.…Don't let them play with your pens, remote controls, or laptops, or…anything else mindlessly.…It won't take long before your audience watches your hands instead of you.…
