“Never leave a table between you and your audience. Invite them out from behind the table. Print out your presentation and stick it on the wall like a “storyboard,” and walk the walls with your client. Cover your final recommendation, because we know they read ahead. When you walk the walls together, you turn a presentation into a conversation, and they will build on your ideas as you go.”
This was a tip I provided in an article of tools, tips, and tactics for public speakers on Fast Company this past October.
