The Correct Posture for Public Speaking Matters
It may not seem like a big deal, but a person’s posture can play a pretty significant role in their public speaking abilities. Those who have trained with us know we put a huge emphasis on body language and non-verbal communication, and good public speaking posture is a part of that.
When you have good posture—regardless of whether you’re standing, sitting, or lying down—the force of gravity is evenly distributed through your body, resulting in muscles, bones, and ligaments that are working equally to support your body.

Love this! Not a lot of people put any thought into their posture (or realize how important it is to their presentation).
Great article. Never thought about this part of public speaking before.
Sometimes, non-verbal communication is even more important than what you are actually saying.
Excellent info-graphic, I will save it to my phone for reference.
Posture is important even in daily situations, let alone public speaking.
With bad posture, nobody takes you seriously.
