Put your hands together for episode eighty-one of The Presentation Boss Podcast! In this episode we give you the answer to one of our most asked questions; “What do I do with my hands when speaking?”

We get it, as you speak and nervousness kicks in, nothing feels comfortable and natural and you become hyper-aware that every movement seems strange and unnatural. What Kate and Thomas discuss in these few minutes is what you should be doing when you don’t know what to do with your hands.

As you become a more comfortable speaker, either over time or throughout the presentation, you’ll become comfortable. But here we share where to start, exactly where to put your hands so you don’t have to worry about looking like an awkward octopus!

We discuss what to do with your hands when you:

• Have empty hands, and are just speaking au naturale,
• Need to hold something like a whiteboard marker or PowerPoint clicker,
• Are handed a microphone and have to hold it the entire time, and

• End up needing to speak from behind a lecturn.

We also laugh at how Kate finds it impossible to use her left hand!
