1 Nonverbal Components of Delivery Personal Appearance, Eye Contact, Facial Expression, Posture, and Proxemics

2 Personal Appearance  Way you dress, groom, and present yourself physically  Speaker’s dress should be appropriate to the occasion  Wear attire that is neither too revealing nor too restricting  Personal appearance is a complex combination of social norms, cultural and generational influences, and personal style

3 Eye Contact  Visual contact with another person’s eyes  Eye contact’s functions include: way to greet and acknowledge the audience before the speech begins, way to gauge and keep our audience’s interest, and way to communicate sincerity and honesty  For effective eye contact: make eye contact with many people in the audience rather than a few friendly faces and look with interest

4 Facial Expression  Your face plays a central role in communicating with your audience, letting them know your attitudes, emotional states, and inner thoughts  Facial expression is the movement of your eyes, eyebrows, and mouth to convey reactions and emotions  Can use facial expressions to communicate your own interest in your topic, your agreement or disagreement with a point, your openness to an idea, and your feeling about an issue

5 Posture  Way we position and carry our bodies  People perceived as confident and relaxed or tense and insecure based on posture  Nervousness can affect our posture

6 Gestures  Movements, usually of the hands but sometimes the entire body, that express meaning and emotion or offer clarity to a message  Gestures should be as natural as possible  Vary your gestures, use gestures that fit your message, and stay relaxed

7 Proxemics  The use of space during communication  Be mindful of how far away you are from your audience as well as how elevated you are from them  The farther away you are, the stronger the idea of separation

8 Rehearsing Your Speech Remember, the more you practice, the more natural you will sound.

9 Rehearsing Your Speech  Practice giving your speech aloud using your speaking outline  Practice all stories, quotations, statistics, and other evidence until you can deliver them exactly as you want  When you are comfortable with your material, practice your speech in front of a mirror

10 Rehearsing Your Speech  Now tape your speech and listen for vocal variety  Practice your speech again, incorporating the verbal and nonverbal changes you worked out in steps 1 through 4  Now practice a few times in front of a friend  Stage a dress rehearsal
