Getting to the Heart and Soul of a Presentation

Now that you've learned a bit about external presentation skills, it's time to get internal—into the heart and soul of a presentation. This chapter takes you to another level of presenting, a level that gets the audience to react to how you think and feel about your message.

Teaching about the body and the voice is somewhat easier than talking about feelings because the body and voice are tangible and very measurable parts of the delivery skill. If you're not moving or no one can hear you, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out the problem. If you're not focused or you don't have enthusiasm—people notice that something is not right, but they're not sure what it is. The audience sees external distractions, but they only sense internal ones. External problems make them not want to look at you at the moment. Internal distractions make them not want to watch you again. The mechanics of function are what keep them coming back for more!
