Example text

Here is a commonly held view: It is really important for the presenter to maintain ‘eye contact’ with the audience. Is it? Who says that it is? In fact just about every book on presentation suggests that it is. Here are two examples. Claudyne Wilder and Jennifer Rotondo say: ‘Your audience will feel that you are really communicating when you look at each person. Your eyes give away your thoughts and feelings’ (Wilder and Rotondo, 2002: 172). And George Brown says: ‘Eye movement and contact not only convey enthusiasm and interest, they also enable you to monitor whether you are being understood’ (Brown, 1978: 24).

Is this fact, hypothesis, personal experience or extrapolation from slim evidence? What literature is available on these concerns; what is it based on and what does it say? Actually, the literature on the importance and role of eye contact in communication is impressive. Michael Argyle provided a significant analysis of the evidence that supports the importance of eye contact to interpersonal behaviour as early as 1967 (reviewed in Argyle, 1974). Psychologists have noted significant correlation between direction of gaze and pattern of speech and stress the importance of gaze signals in synchronizing communication.

2002) Point Click and Wow: A Quick Guide to Brilliant Laptop Presentation. San Francisco, CA: Wiley. Reassurance for new presenters Those new to presenting may not need this chapter to begin with. New presenters are generally, and reasonably, most interested in practical advice on how to present well. After a few presentations, however, most presenters want to improve if possible. Finding that presentation has a theoretical basis and a literature may come as a surprise, but it is reassuring that much helpful advice and many common-sense approaches do have support from the education and psychology literature.
