Oct 30 – Effect Presentation (Bolun, Anthony, Sam)

“Your body language may shape who you are” is a TedTalk by Amy Cuddy. In the video Amy used expressive body language to make her speech appear more coherent to her audiences. She used hand gestures to emphasize her claims, and use movements to help with transitions. Although she had a microphone attached, her voice was loud, clear, and easy to understand. In the TedTalk, she makes sure that all the audiences are receiving some sort of eye contact by turning her head left and right. Behind her is a projector, she showed photos and texts to help strengthen her arguments by providing visual aid in addition to her speech. Her posture appeared confident throughout the presentation, and this confidence helps her build credibility among the audiences.
