This is Bronwyn Ritchie from Pivotal Public Speaking and like you, I have sat through speeches and presentations where the person presenting read - either from sheets of paper, or from their slides.
And I felt left out. Maybe the presenter was passionate about their material. Maybe not.
But I still felt left out - left out of the experience and the passion and the information they were reading - left out of the potential that the experience and the passion had for me and for the world. I felt ignored, in fact.
Maybe you have felt the same.
Maybe you fear that you are making people feel the same.
Change is needed. You know that.
You know that eye contact in public speaking is necessary, vital. You can't make eye contact with an audience and with a page or slide.
And there is something about the written word that is entirely different from the spoken word.
Audiences are there to listen, not to read; and not to listen alone, but to engage with you, the presenter, the speaker
Speakers who are not engaging with their audiences are leaving money on the table. They are losing opportunities to connect, and therefore to persuade, inform, educate, entertain.
