Public Speaking: Eye Contact

When you’re on stage, you can’t keep your gaze set on a sole individual. It makes you look stiff, and it’s probably creeping out the person you’re locking eyes with.

So how do you balance out eye contact when making a speech?

I recommend using a three target system:

  • pick three people in different parts of the room
  • bounce back and forth between each of them

As long as you keep your glances relaxed, those sections of the room will be caught in your field of vision. You’ll look much more natural this way.

If any questions, or if you’re interested in booking an online speech session, send an e-mail my way at letstalk[at]
