How to use body language effectively

Whether you are speaking to a group or networking, body language tells a lot about you.

Standing tall, opening your arms and chest will boost your confidence—and your authority.

People feel connected if you make eye contact. 

A warm and inviting smile also asks people to join you and be part of the event.

Mirroring people and nodding shows you are interested in what they have to say.

If you are excited about a topic, let the passion come through to add emotional interest.

Using and varying gestures—as long as they’re not too large or frantic—adds visual variety to your words.

If you point (to make a point), do so with an open hand.
