Episode 107: Body Language and Speaking

Sep 26, 2022

Wouldn’t it be great if you could connect with your audience using more than just your voice? Would you believe me if I told you that was possible? As a speaker, it’s more than possible – it’s essential. When your words don’t match your body language, you create tension. This isn’t what you want when speaking about trusting the Lord and being true to who he has called you to be! If you’re ready to learn how to use your body more effectively to share your message with more impact, keep listening…

When you’re on that stage, the last thing you want to do is seem sloppy or as if you’re hiding something. In today’s episode, I cover 5 ways to make more of an impact on your audience by using your body language. As a bonus, I will give you some exercises to try while listening to this podcast!

Highlights from this episode include:

  • Pay attention to your body language (1:30)
  • An exercise to try (2:06)
  • 5 tips for connecting with your audience using body language (2:46)
  • Bonus tip (3:09)

  • The 3rd tip (7:06)
  • The 4th tip (8:23)
