When Public Speaking, Look at Individuals Instead of the Entire Group
August 5, 2017•3 min
The next time you’re asked to lead a meeting, teach a class, or give a speech, here’s one way to get everyone’s attention: look at individual people instead of letting your gaze settle on the entire group. As you give your speech or present your information, make eye contact with a single member of your audience. Choose a person who is already looking at you; this isn’t a Glare of Shame to try to get someone off their phone.
