You’re well prepared and rehearsed, dressed appropriately and you’re presenting with confidence and a dash of humour (nice one). So what’s with the less positive vibe you’re getting from the group? Could it be your body language? What are your hands doing?
It’s important to consider your body language in most situations like a job interview, presentation or when meeting someone you’re keen to impress. It can make a huge difference to how you come across.
When it’s possible, try to make small changes to your body language that will help you appear confident to other people.
Check out TED Talks for inspiration and examples, or try out your body language skills on family and friends. It might feel a little bit awkward to begin with, but can very quickly become a fun and hugely confidence-building exercise, not to mention invaluable practise ahead of your next meeting or interview.
