Online PR News – 14-April-2021 – Vero Beach, FL – Claudette Roche, the Accent Coach, has worked with over 500 Fortune companies, professionals, and private individuals. She’s an expert when it comes to nailing communications, speeches, and more. And body language is a key part of any communication - whether that’s a speech or just talking amongst one’s colleagues.
Roche elaborates, “The way you talk is powerful. But your body language can also elude to power and knowledge. Not only that, but it can make you feel more confident - depending on how you’re standing and presenting yourself.”
The Accent Coach even dives into tips and tricks when it comes to improving body language, specifically when giving a speech or addressing a big audience. She says, “Let’s start with the way a person stands. If you’re kind of hunching and leaning to one side, you’re probably not going to feel too grounded or confident. And you can actually try this right now. So try standing hunched and to one side. How do you feel? Take note of that. Then, let’s stand with our feet planted hip-width apart and with our weight balanced on both feet, while also standing tall. Now, how do you feel? My bet is that most feel more confident and ready to deliver their ideas.”
Roche also says that looking people in the eye can make the speaker seem more personable and relatable. “It makes you feel like you’re talking to a real person. They know you’re human like them which is comforting and it connects you to others,” Roche states.
Claudette Roche signs off by telling the speakers of the world what they shouldn’t do. “Never fiddle. Don’t pick at your pants. Don’t twirl a pen. These things are distracting. If you’re trying to get a message across, this is getting in the way. Simply, stand tall. Balance your weight on both feet. Make eye contact, and you’ll do just fine”
