Changing your position or location while speaking is the broadest, most visible physical action you can perform. Therefore it can either help drive your message home or spell failure for even the most well-planned speech.
Moving your body in a controlled, purposeful manner
creates three benefits:
However, body movement can work against you. Rememember this one rule:
The eye is inevitably attracted to a moving object, so any body
movement you make during a speech invites attention. Too much
movement, even the right kind, can become distracting to an
audience. Bear in mind the following types of body movement:
The final reason for body movement is the easiest; to get from one place to another. In almost every speaking situation, you must walk from the location you are addressing your audience to your props, especially if you are using visual aids. Always change positions by leading with the foot nearest your destination.
You may ask, Why move in the first place? Moving forces
people to focus and follow you. The way you walk from your seat
to the speaker's location is very important. When you are
introduced, you should appear eager to speak. Many speakers
look as though they are heading toward execution.
