Here are 10 top tips on what to do with your body before and during a presentation.

1 Warm up

It’s really important to prepare yourself for a presentation. Above all, you need to appear calm and relaxed. But how?

i BREATHING EXERCISES can really help you relax. Take a deep breath through your nose for 3 seconds, hold it for 3 seconds, and then exhale through your mouth for another 3. After doing that about 10 times, start making an “ahh” sound as you exhale. This will also warm up your voice.

ii POWER POSES will give you increased confidence. A few minutes before you have to go on stage, find somewhere private (the bathroom, for example). Then, stand with your feet wide apart and your hands behind your head or on your hips for a couple of minutes. As you’re standing there, repeat motivating phrases to yourself such as, “I’m going to give a killer presentation!” Adopting a power pose will make you feel powerful and confident – guaranteed!
