Position Yourself When Presenting

The presenter, at a recent seminar I attended, spoke from the back of the room as everyone looked at the screen/slides. People didn’t know where to look - at the presenter or at the screen. He kept moving around the room, which made it hard to focus on the content and what he was saying.

At one point he planted himself right behind me. This was 7:30 am, I was still waking up, and his voice was so loud which made it very irritating. I also felt self conscious because the entire audience was looking right at me since he was standing right behind me. I heard absolutely nothing that came out of his mouth.

To get your message across effectively your audience needs to see your facial expressions and body language. Present in front of the room, make eye contact with everyone, and present like a pro.
