Starting StrongIt is important to make a strong start and a good first impression with:

Good postureGood eye contactGood Voice

Im so nervous! (said while exhaling strongly)

Title Slide

1st Set your feet & hands (shoulder width)

This is stable, and shows self-control and confidence.- Hands in a comfortable resting position

2nd Eye contact (look at audience for 2/3 seconds) Look at several people. This delay helps you collect your thoughts.

3rd Deep breath

4th (At the top of your breath) start speaking

Speak 150% louder than conversation voice. This will get rid of nervous energy.Good morning everyone. My names.Title Slide

Why is it a bad presentation? Discuss.


PPT not on screen (audience is waiting) / wrong PPT

Over-reliant on notes / reading from notes

Just read what was on slide

Uh, Uh, UhTitle Slide

Hands in pockets

Facing PPT

Not engaging audience with direct eye-contact

Took a phone call

Monotone (not modulating voice)

Font on slides clashed with background

* Choose somebody, make a point, choose somebody, make a point

Body Posture & Eye ContactTitle Slide

Activity: Introduce yourself to your group

Group members

Raise your hand when the presenter makes eye contact Lower your hand when they make eye contact again

The Pendulum

Swaying from side to side is poor speech posture because it communicates that you are also swaying back and forth between ideas in your mind The Leaning Tower of Pisa

Leaning to one side is poor speech posture because it is too relaxed, and makes the audience feel that you arent serious about your speech.

The Birdwatcher

Looking up at the ceiling while giving a speech is poor eye contact because it shows that you arent well prepared and dont know what to say.

The Surfer

Moving your shoulders and upper body around as you speak is poor speech posture. It makes the audience feel that you are not calm, and not confident about your message.

The Hula Dancer

Swinging your hips back and forth and from side to side is poor speech posture because it shows that you are nervous, and not comfortable with your message.

Washing Your Hands

Rubbing your hands together as if you were washing them or playing with something in your hands is poor speech posture because it shows that you are nervous

The Star Gazer

Looking out the window or staring at the back of the room is poor eye contact for a speech because it makes the audience feel that you are not interested in them.

The Soldier

Standing stiffly at attention with your feet together and your hands at your sides is poor speech posture because it makes you look nervous and uncomfortable in your role as speaker.
