To speak in public and share inspiring stories that you experience is indeed not an easy thing. There are many people who are wrong in doing so and end up failing.

With various stories that he has experienced, he is able to become a reliable speaker and liked by many people.
Being a speaker, of course, is not just about the topic you are talking about. Another thing that also influences is the body language that you give in the conversation. There are several body languages ??that you have to do in a conversation or when you become a speaker.
1. Give eye contact to listeners
Eye contact with those you are talking to is crucial which should concern you. how much eye contact with the listener do you need? For one on one talks, try no more than 85%. This is because too much eye contact in private conversations will make the other person you feel intimidated.
Well, to speak in front of a group or many people, the strategy used is certainly different. The most effective way to create good eye contact with listeners is to gently shift your gaze from one person to another.
2. Side view of the eye
In addition to making eye contact with listeners, it’s a good idea to make your eyes look sideways so that you don’t seem to intimidate the listener. This is also to give attention to the listeners who are beside you.
3. Talk slowly
Whatever you convey in a hurry will only make the listener confused to understand the meaning of your words. Speaking slowly is the main factor to get your charm out while talking. In addition, speaking slowly also makes you avoid mistakes when you speak fast.
