How Important is Audience Body Language?

You might be following all the rules there is in presentation and public speaking. But do you take the time to analyze what your audience is telling you through their body language? By observing your audience and the way they behave non-verbally, you can get a lot of information which can be useful in determining their levels of interest during your presentation. Once you know this, then  it would be easier for you to engage your audience, avoid tricks and techniques that bore them and ultimately, persuade them with the ideas and strategies you’re presenting.

Here are some things to watch out for:

  • Facial Expressions
  • Leaning Forwards
  • Crossing of Arms

This is just the tip of the iceberg. You can try studying NLP (neuro-linguistic programming) to know the science behind it. But for now, head to this post for a more detailed information: Audience Body Language
