Have you ever watched someone give a presentation with his hands clutched as if he wanted to cover his privates?  Or perhaps you’ve seen a speaker talking with her hands in her pocket, or with her hands on her hips? 

Such stances can make a speaker seem nervous, less confident, insecure, too casual, or even aggressive, depending on the body language that is projected.

Here is a video from Dananjaya Hettiarachchi (2014 Toastmasters International world champion of public speaking) revealing four essential body language tips.

Are you interested in seeing how you can improve your public speaking skills and even gain new ones?

Here is an interesting article giving useful tips on how to avoid using some of the dreaded filler words “Um” and “Uh” when speaking.

“Becoming Well-Spoken:
How to Minimize Your Uh’s and Um’s”

Although it’s from the website “The Art of Manliness", the article can apply to both sexes. It explains why we tend to use filler words and how they can be detrimental, and then gives suggestions that can help to minimize the use of such fillers.

Um and other filler words
