Pace on Purpose when Public Speaking

Stop pacing back and forth. It’s driving your audience crazy and it’s taking away from your presentation. Pace on purpose. When you pace, or walk around, make it a part of your speech. You might walk towards an audience member, act out a character in your story, or pace on a transition phrase. Always say your points standing still and making eye contact with the audience. Public speaking coach Darren LaCroix emphasized this point when he spoke at NSA New England this month.
