How A Motivational Speaker Can Make A Good First Impression
If your purpose is to make the best possible first impression on your audience, remember this simple but rarely-used stage entrance.
I learned this from an old-school cabaret magician.
Problem: If you are waiting in the wings and after your MC's introduction you walk to centre stage, that means the audience's first view/impression of you is in profile. Not powerful, not flattering.
Instead,(if possible) walk on from close to the back curtain/wall and when you reach centre stage turn and confidently walk the final steps to the stage edge.
This way the audience gets to see you and all your confidence full on. It's much more impressive.
I’m a motivational keynote speaker on Leadership and Change.
I show business leaders simple ways to give their people the skills and the confidence to get through not only this disruption, but the next, and the next, and next.
