Effective Body Language
This project focuses on how to recognize body language used when speaking publicly and how to use gestures to enhance speech content.
Purpose: The purpose of this project is for the member to deliver a speech with awareness of intentional and unintentional
body language, as well as to learn, practice, and refine how he or she uses nonverbal communication when
delivering a speech.
Overview: Prepare a 5- to 7-minute speech on a topic that lends itself to expression through your movement and gestures. Video record your presentation and get feedback from your mentor or another reviewer before speaking to your club. If you do not have access to a recording device, perform your speech in front of a mirror and make adjustments before your scheduled speech.
