Your elementary school teacher was WRONG!
Remember how she said to keep your hands by your side and stop moving them when you talk?
She meant well. She didn’t want you to appear distracting.
But your lack of movement conveys a lack of energy, passion and commitment to your topic.
Here’s a compromise.
🚫 DON’T wander around aimlessly when you’re presenting
✅ DO use physical gestures and body language to promote enthusiasm.
