					            Making a Good First
               Impression.

• You never have a 2nd chance to make a 1st
impression.
• Depends on:
        • How you look
        • What you say
        • How you move



Factors:

• Time you enter the room
• Posture
• Clothes
• Tone and volume of voice
• Gestures of hands and arms (and Proxemics)
 Entering the room
• See the place BEFORE
• Door, seating pattern, tables, electrical outlets, other
equipment (projector and screen)
    • Remember: Unprepared = Unprofessional
• Posture
• Time -- on time, all the time
    • Being late will make you MORE nervous



 Voice
 • Speak in a natural flow, medium speed
 • Speak clearly
Gestures/Body Movements
                                      Where do I
                                     put my hands
                                      and arms?




         Here’s the
         answer !




         STAND correctly.

         Benefits:
         • Arms comfortable
         • Note cards ready
         • Gestures easier (pointing & enumeration)
         • Avoiding “Rocking Boat” distraction
                          Audience




Left foot                                              Right foot




            Place back foot at 90 degrees or a little less



An effective method of standing to reduce problem of
             “where do I put my hands?”
Proxemics & Kinesics

For Effectiveness:
• Think
• Plan
• Analyze
• Select most effective
    Be natural, of course. But remember, a
   rightly selected gesture, (and proxemics)
    at just the right time, and connected to
   just the right word . . . will REALLY add
     power to your words, and capture the
           attention of your audience.



Caution !
