Talking Technique Ep 03: Why don’t you… look them in the eye?

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.


  • Connect

    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.

  • Randomize

    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.

  • Practice

    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
