How many of you are not a fan of awkward silence? On your first dinner date, that might be understandable, but on the stage, silence is golden. Now, whether it’s awkward or not, is up to you.
In this lesson, you’re going to learn how to leverage powerful pauses and pacing to build momentum in your speech and connect with your audience through shared reflective moments.
Emily Dickinson once said, “Saying nothing sometimes says the most.” Knowing exactly when to say nothing is an art that’s guaranteed to elevate your next presentation.
Remember, the trick to pausing is to be purposeful. And it’s even more effective when combined with a variety of pacing in your cadence.
