How and where you stand when presenting a presentation will have an affect on your success.
How well people remember the content you shared with them will be improved by where you stand when presenting a presentation.
In English, we read the sentences in all of our books, newspapers and magazines from left to right.
This same left to right movement can be used to help the attendees with their understanding by creating a timeline of the situation or events we are sharing.
As you start speaking about what occurred in the past, make your way over to your right which is the audience’s left.
Remain in this area to deliver this part of your speech.
When it then comes to discussing where we are now and the current situation, slowly walk over to the centre of the speaking area.
Finally, as it now comes to talking about what can be achieved in the future, walk to your left which is your audience’s right.
This three-stage structure will help with the audience's awareness and appreciation of the situation you are sharing with them.
