One of the most distracting habits a presenter can develop when speaking in public, is poor body movement.
Every move you make when presenting, should support your message. If you are talking about big things, make a big movement. Some people pace in an attempt to engage the audience, when all they really project is a sense of indecision about their direction.
Here are a few ideas to consider:
1. Stand still when making important points.
2. Move with a medium to slow pace from one side of the stage to the other if required.
3. In the Western world, the audience to the left is the past and to the right is the future. Move from left to right as your point unfolds.
4. Move into the audience if you wish to create better engagement.
5. The centre front of the stage is the most powerful area to communicate inspirational messages.
Move with purpose when you are presenting.
