Here is HOT Tip #4 in the strategic presentation skills series – Make sure your posture and body language enhance your presentation
Your posture should convey confidence, poise, and credibility. In order to do this your shoulders should be slightly back, your weight should be evenly distributed between your feet, your legs should be no further apart than your shoulder width, and your hands should be either at your side, at your waist, or one hand at your waist one at your side.
Make sure your shoulders are not stiff and square, don’t turtle your head forward, don’t stare or blink excessively, and do not lean on the podium.
Record yourself presenting so you can see if your body language conveys poise and confidence by looking relaxed yet powerful.
