Public Speaking Tip #10: Using props during a presentation

Do you use props in your presentations? In today’s tip, I share a few pointers on how to use props. For example:

  • As Jill Lublin suggests, when you are talking about your book, hold it up near your face for as long as you can.
  • When making a toast, hold the champagne glass up and away from your face so that people will not only know you’re making a toast, but can also see your face while you do so.
  • Make sure your props are appropriate for your venue and can be seen clearly by the audience members sitting farthest away from you.
