Using Gestures During A Presentation: Flow, Don't Flail

Appropriate arm gestures used when giving a presentation will enhance attention and reinforce your message. Wild or confusing movements definitely detract from both. Keep gestures above the waist; be slow; be varied and by all means be accurate (never hold up four fingers when you're giving three reasons!). Don't be afraid to occasionally rest your arms. Gestures should never be applied -- they should be spontaneous to reinforce the message. At times, rest arms by your side and, remember, practice makes perfect. Refine your gestures until they're second nature.
