VŠECHNY LEKCE ZDE
The purpose in doing this is to bond with your audience, and to make sure that they "feel" as though they are as much a part of your presentation as you do.
"Working" the Room
While eye contact is essential, you must first put some shrewd thought into making it, and you should try to use it as a tool to empower and embolden you to deliver that great speech or presentation.
Regarding eye contact, if you are speaking before a large audience, or even a large meeting room and there are many people in front of you, it is best to try and “talk” to the back of the room or the back walls.
By making a point to do this, you end up projecting yourself essentially over everyone, and then this allows you to pull your eyes away from the back of the room, looking over everyone’s head, and then you can bring your eyes down to look directly and specifically at certain individuals.
In a general audience, try to identify what are called "friendly faces" and then make a point to look straight at them while YOU are making a key, important point.
If you are speaking before a group of specific individuals whom you know or you must "impress" (such as managers or potential clients) make sure that you focus on these important people as you state your important points.
The idea here is to make sure that everyone feels like you spoke directly to them, and genuinely care.
