So cool that client had a videotape of their speech. Gives me a chance to rewind and rewatch. Very cool.
- Font size: Consider doubling your font size (which means more pieces of paper).
- Voice projection: Consider sounding a bit louder.
- Eye contact: Good. Consider increasing the duration of eye contact with each Board member. Having a larger font size will help smooth the transition of looking back-and-forth between Board members and your paper.
- Hands position: Your default hand positions are: “clutched with interlaced fingers” and “overlapping hands.” Your hands can probably be separated and “bracket” your pieces of paper (left hand at left-side of paper; right hand at right-side of paper). Also consider placing your left hand at the left side of your paper while your right hand tracks your place in a sentence and/or flips the paper over.
- Speaking pace: Sounds good. Consider slowing down a bit in the beginning and you’d still be fine.
- Pausing/breathing: Consider adding slightly longer breaks between info by forcing longer pauses between info.
- Good use of animating/extending your right hand during your final answer session.
Wow! Thank you so much for the feed back! You’re great. Definitely making the font size bigger and using one hand to keep my place. I do want to project [my voice] more, I need to practice that. I forgot to bring a water bottle and my throat (of course) felt drier because I had no water. I love your suggestions and making the connection with you.
