The conclusion of our discussion on how to use your gestures in presentations.

Presentations regularly come in the top 10 lists about what people are most afraid of. And, we regularly sit through terrible presentations at client sites. Presentations fall into both the Christmas rule: you do it rarely, it's important, it's bound to go poorly, AND the one-eyed man is king rule: you just have to be a little bit better and you'll knock your audience's socks off.

A classic cast

 Thanks for this one!  As a non-demonstrative high-C, I really needed you to hit me with this.  I've already begun nodding my head more vigorously  when I have something to add to a meeting.  So much more effective than my usual, slight movement. 

This immediately felt like a no brainier that I should have known all along - Always a sign of a great cast.
