Use direct eye contact to make a personal connection to your audience members. Beware though, there's a right way and a wrong way to do this.
When speaking in front of a group of any size, it is critical to build a connection to your audience. Direct eye contact can create a sense of intimacy and trust.
When you move from one person to another in a line, that can be uncomfortable and distracting for your audience. Instead, allow your connections to be random as you move from one person to the next.
Eye contact can be intimate and scary. This technique is very effective and can be a game changer - allow it to take time to become natural.
Dare to connect with your audience members. Look them in the eye and establish a connection, one sentence at a time."Kymberlee Weil
