In the presentation and public speaking world, we talk about having ‘presence’. But what exactly does ‘presence’ mean in this context and how do you achieve it?
When you’re speaking in public with presence and gravitas, your audience are engaged with you and your words; you exude calmness, confidence and credibility.
If you try to lead the audience around to your point of view too soon, they will resist because of the reasons above.
When we pace an audience, we let them know we acknowledge what they might be feeling before we attempt to lead them around to our point of view.
In thisTEDX talk, Mark Robinson shows us an excellent technique which combines asking questions and telling stories to deliver an engaging presentation.
