Visually Speaking - The Mechanics of Presenting
Since the greatest percentage of planned communication is nonverbal, this seminar emphasizes personal delivery styles and the mechanics of presenting. You will learn the power of body language, eye contact, and gestures for enhancing your teaching effectiveness. Also discussed are techniques needed to maintain control of the audience through planned movement, key body angles, balanced actions, and proper phrasing. The result is a practical, easily-applied approach designed to increase the delivery skills of those who communicate to groups of any size.
By the end of this session you will be able to:
- Reduce anxiety by matching physical movement to content
- Use gestures to direct and control attention
- Recognize common vocal problems and reduce distractions
