Think back—way back—to when you had to give your first big talk. Not just as an adult, but what was the first moment of “public speaking” you remember?
Your elementary school teacher probably gave instructions to make sure that you stayed absolutely still when you presented, keeping your arms to your sides.
I’m sure from an elementary school teacher’s perspective, this tactic controls unruly classroom energy. It makes sense.
Still, when we grow up with rigid rules on exactly what public speaking needs to look like, we start to think that all a good presentation takes is following rules AT ALL TIMES or others might see right through us.
Speak loud and slow.
Do something interesting with your hands to compel the audience.
What’s enjoyable about any of these rules? And more important, who will be compelled to take action if your presentation skills aren’t refined?
There’s more to it than one simple, formulaic body position to achieve the most out of your speaking gig. Knowing some elements from one of the world’s greatest speaking coaches will help deliver your message the forefront of things.
