    1. 1. A public speaking slideshow on my experience with Amy Cuddy’s “Your bodylanguage shapes who you are”. by Stephen Jones
    2. 2. Amy’s speech was about the effects of how our body language has a verysignificant impact on our minds and other people.
    3. 3. Amy did a very good job capturing the attention of the audience by directlyinteracting with them. She first told them she had a free give away to all of the audience members if they would just change their posture for two minutes which pertains to the main point of the presentation.
    4. 4. She maintained the engagement of the audience throughout the speech by telling some very compelling and sentimental stories about her lifethat truly did inspire sympathy within me as surely it did with the audience.
    5. 5. In terms of dynamism I give her a 3. She seemed a bit nervous to me. Also she started to cry during one of her stories, as heart felt as it was and even though she seemed to pull it off ok I believe that crying when giving a presentation is playing with fire in terms of dynamism. Anotherarea that I feel she could of improved on was her breathing techniques, as they seemed to change about a quarter of the way through the presentation and it seemed to be a little too noticeable to me.
    6. 6. I learned that eye contact is very important and fromwatching Amy I could see that she made consistent eye contact with the audience the entire duration of her presentation. I also noticed that she had good confidence in her voice which to me is essential when speaking in front of an audience. I also recognized that she had the audience laughing from time to time withthe way she presented her slides which I thought was a great technique. She had a very sympathetic story incorporated into her presentation that was quite compelling, also a great technique.
    7. 7. Advice I would like to share with the class is to practice being aware of your body language and how it affectsnot only others but how it affects yourself. Realize thatjust by changing the posture of how you are standing or sitting can vastly change the outcome of a given situation. I also advise them to watch the presentationgiven by Amy Cuddy because it can help you with public speaking.
    8. 8. I feel as though both Sir Ken Robinson and Amy Cuddydid an extremely good job. Sir Robinson seemed to usejokes as a way to keep the audience involved. Amy used more of a sincere true life story approach. Sir Robinson didn’t use quite as much body language as Amy exhibited. Amy lost her composure when telling her story which is a no no when giving a speech. Sir Robert held his composure through out his presentation.
    9. 9. I feel as though both Sir Ken Robinson and Amy Cuddydid an extremely good job. Sir Robinson seemed to usejokes as a way to keep the audience involved. Amy used more of a sincere true life story approach. Sir Robinson didn’t use quite as much body language as Amy exhibited. Amy lost her composure when telling her story which is a no no when giving a speech. Sir Robert held his composure through out his presentation.
