“Presence.” You know it when you see it: Bill Clinton and Ronald Reagan had it. Gerald Ford and Jimmy Carter did not. Those who have it gain an advantage in winning others over.
Use these acting techniques to help you gain stage presence:
1. Pay attention to your entrance—your handshake, for example, and the first few words you say.
2. Line check. Note your verbals (volume, speed, articulation) and nonverbals (gestures, facial expressions).
3. Know your lines. If you don’t know what you’re talking about, you’ll lose credibility.
4. Exit, stage left. Re-emphasize key messages, remember people’s names and their questions, and follow up on commitments.
