With Speaking, Study Others and Improve your Gesture

STUDY OTHERS AND IMPROVE (Gesture)

Those presenting on or for television should not undervalue gesture. Movement of arms, hands, head, neck and other parts of the body can help by giving particular emphasis to what speakers, be they presenters, questioners or respondents, are saying.

Without gesture, those appearing on our screens can appear to be almost un-alive and inanimate. Too much gesture, be it pacing, flapping of the arms, overuse of the forearms, hands and fingers in making points, can be distracting.

We can all learn from what we see. We also learn about what to do, by becoming aware of what not to do, by seeing the ‘dont’s’ in others.
