Presenting Smoothly Without Quirks #20043

This video teaches you how to give a smooth presentation that is free of quirks, i.e., distracting physical habits that divert audience attention away from you and your message. Some of the most common physical quirks are demonstrated. You will learn how video taping yourself can reveal any nervous habits that you don't realize you have. You will learn about the “presentation strike zone," a safe area for your hands to occupy as you speak. Finally, you will learn some acceptable replacement gestures that give your hands something to do and reinforce what you want to communicate.



Main Points

  1. Identify your quirks. (Record yourself to find out what they are.)
  2. Give your hands something to do. (Keep them in the strike zone.)
