How to Use Your Hands and Voice When Speaking in Public
How to Uses Your Hands and Voice When Speaking in Public
Your hands and your voice work together. Your hands and your voice work together. Your hands and your voice work together.
You can't do one without the other. Sometimes if I'm being very, very cruel, which happily I don't need to be today, I will play one of these back with the volume turned off, and I'll get this...
And then I say how interesting do you think that voice was and you say it can't be, there's nothing happening.
So this is why I'm so keen on you not to have notes, particularly at the beginning of the day, or clickers or things in your hands.
Because if you want to kill your voice completely, the best thing you can do, lock your eyes, lock your hands and then within a few minutes, your voice is going to start matching your body and then you've got this monotone coming again.
So make sure that connection is there all the time. So if you're worried about your voice, check what your body's doing.
You've gone like this, you've gone like this, and now the voice is gone.
So sometimes almost arbitrarily, I will just do something in the middle of it if I think my voice is going to send me, physically just to get the thing up and going again.
