Imagine that the person you’re looking at is the only person in the room. For those few seconds you’re having a one-on-one conversation with just that person. This has two benefits. You’re likely to talk in a more conversational style because you’re drawing on the conversational skills you already have. It may also reduce your nervousness because you’ll no longer feel like you’re talking to this big audience – but just to one person.

Even a newbie at public speaking knows they should make eye contact.

But the term eye contact is rather vague. It can infer just making fleeting “contact” with a person then moving on. Don’t make eye contact – make “eye connection.”  Eye connection means spending time with each person so that person feels like you’re talking just to them. Eye connection has two major benefits:

  1. People in your audience will feel that you have genuinely connected with them and that you care about their reaction.
  2. Because you’re talking to people as if you were in a one-on-one conversation, you’ll come across as conversational. That makes you easy to listen to and engaging.

This slideshow features eight tips on how to make eye connection, provided by presentation trainer Olivia Mitchell.  Visit Olivia’s website for more presentation tips.
