During presentations, your body can say as much about your personality as your words do—if not more. Follow these tips to convey your true personality. Show that you are:

  • Likeable. Make direct eye contact with your listeners. Move from person to person, looking each in the eye for a few seconds as you talk.
  • In charge. If you want to show others that you are the authority figure in the room, stay calm and use small, controlled gestures.
  • Confident. Keep your shoulders square and your back straight. Open your chest and arms. Don’t hunch or cross your arms across your chest, and you’ll appear confident.
  • Influential. Persuade your audience by nodding, smiling and using plenty of movement throughout your presentation.
