Look at Your Audience #20056

This video explains how to connect with the people in your audience, hold their interest, and maintain control by simply keeping your eyes focused on them. You will observe in this video how the speaker’s connection with us, his audience, is interrupted when he looks at his screen for an extended period of time. You will then see how our attention is retained when he keeps his eyes focused primarily on us, after only a brief glance towards the screen.



Key Points: When you give business presentations, you need to make sure you look at your audience when you are talking about your slides. If you look at the screen while you are talking about your slides, your audience may lose interest. Worst case, they may stop listening to you. Keep control of your audience's attention by looking at them!
