Presentation success and diaphragmatic breathing
I’m back with the University of Derby today on how to manage your emotions so that you can deliver brilliant presentations.
One of the most difficult things to do when you are adrenalised is to keep still, particularly your feet and fingers. You might find yourself shuffling and twitching.
Stillness, where appropriate in a presentation, gives out a message of absolute confidence.
One powerful way to be still and silent is to practice diaphragmatic breathing.
This type of breathing works by increasing the blood flow to the brain which automatically transmits a calming effect to your central nervous system. It also enables your immune system to work to its fullest.
This practical video will show you how to practice diaphragmatic breathing and enable you to manage your state more positively, increasing your chance of delivering brilliant presentations.
