  35. 35. . BodyFor great presentations combineverbal and non verbalcommunications:• Comfortable stance• Stand tall• Use your hands• Lean forward to emphasise• Smile..... In the right places! 34
  36. 36. .Eye ContactRemember that you also gesture with your eyes. We getuncomfortable in the company of someone who doesn’t makeeye contact with us for at least 60% of the time. We call them“shifty”.• Focus on one person for about 1-3 seconds, then move on.• People sitting near the person you select will also feel that you are looking at them.• Beware of “blind spots”. It is easy to drop into the habit of cutting out one section of the audience. This will not help your presentation. 35
  37. 37. .VoiceThe are three mainproblems with voice:• Volume• Tone• Pitch• Speed• Breathe..... 36
  38. 38. Pause Pace Stress 37
  39. 39. . Language• Use short sentences. Use short words. Don’t be afraid to repeat yourself. It can reinforce your message (remember Martin Luther King’s speech “I have a dream”)• Politicians repeat• Rule of three• Otherwise, use “signpost” words or sentences like: “So, we have said...” “Next, we shall...” “Finally, ...” 38
  40. 40. Questions• A presentation is a dialogue. The dialogue is more effective if the audience can talk. You need to welcome questions.• If you ask for questions, look like you mean it. Step towards the audience. Raise our hand and show your palm.• Listen to the question. Don’t assume that you know what is being asked until the questioner has finished.• Before you answer the question, repeat it. In a large room it is often hard for the rest of the audience to hear it.• Anticipate questions and practise your answers. If you are asked something you don’t know, admit it. Try and add “But what I do know is..” 39
