What should you do with your legs when you are presenting?

People often ask me, “What’s the rule about movement as a presenter? What should you do with your legs?” I’m Michelle Bowden. I’m an authority on persuasive presenting in business. And today in less than 60 seconds I’m going to teach you the hard and fast rules so you know exactly what to do with those legs of yours when you’re presenting.


Here’s the rule, it’s as simple as this: either stand still, or move with a purpose.


That means either stand still with your feet under your hips, and your brace muscles engaged, your core engaged. Or, move with a purpose. Move to a section of the room because you mean to move there. And when you get there, stand still again. Take some time in that space, and then off you go again to a new location on the floor. And when you get there, stand still. See, it’s as simple as that. Either stand still or move with a purpose.

Happy presenting!
