As a speaker, you need to connect with your audience both emotionally and intellectually to make your message a success. Eye contact is critical to creating a connection with an audience of any size.
My friend and fellow presentation expert, Sims Wyeth writes “When my mother corrected me, she wagged her crooked index finger in my face and met me at my 4th grade level, eyeball to eyeball. I could not take my eyes off her eyes.
When a presenter has the quiet eye, and connects with members of the audience, one at a time, she establishes her authority and influence.
It’s not an angry eye. It’s the eye of confidence and emotional conviction, the eye of calm assertiveness. It gives the speaker power. You have it at home when you mean what you say. Bring it to work for your presentations.”
Thanks you Sims Wyeth!
