Power Presentations Tip 11

Stand Proud - Look like a winner.

Look like a Gold Medal Champion

Accepting the Olympic Gold medal for your country is no time to look timid. While you are watching the Olympic Games notice how the medal winners - especially the gold medal winners - stand when they receive their recognition.


Observe the body language - feet firmly planted, body erect, shoulders back, head up, smiling, eyes aglow and one or both arms thrust triumphantly high. Even if you missed the competition and watched the awards ceremony with the sound turned off - you still know who won.


Often your audience is watching you with the sound off - more often then you might think. They might be day dreaming or considering whether they should listen to you. It takes less effort to look than to listen so first they look at you before deciding to listen to you.


And even if they are listening they stop listening to you while they are digesting your words and listening to their own thoughts.


Your audience sees much more than they hear. And they will remember more of what they saw than what they heard. That's one of the reasons we tend to remember faces better than names.


What does this mean to you?

When rehearsing your presentation be sure to rehearse how you look. You will convey the wrong message if you slump like a cynical Woody Allen or slink like a treacherous Gollum. Rehearse in front of a mirror to get your body language right. Get yourself in the right mood by imagining yourself accepting the Gold medal for your presentation. When no one's watching stand in front of that mirror and thrust your arms high in jubilation.

We're watching you but maybe not listening. Delivering your presentation is no time to look timid.
