IRL: How Geeks Undermine Their Presentations & Conversations With Body Language

573

Published on

Watching my peers and staff speak and work with clients for many years, I have realized that many geeks are uncomfortable interacting IRL. But, you don’t have to be. There are some simple physical tricks to keeping an audience (of 1 or 1k) engaged and not undermining your skills and yourself. I’m going to talk about positioning of the body, head and hands in relation to the people you’re interacting with, in relation to the room, and in relation to yourself. I’ll outline some best practices, some behaviors to watch for in you, and even some things that you can watch for in other people.
