How to Speak Better on Zoom

By now, you might be “Zoomed” out (i.e. tired of Zoom calls), but Zoom calls & meetings aren’t going away soon.

If you need to present or lead a Zoom call, here’s some tips on how to be a better speaker on Zoom:

  1. Body position: show your torso, not just your face/head
  2. Body language: just as in face-to-face interactions, your body language online enhances or detracts from your presentation
  3. Use your hands to help engagement
  4. Body movement: again, helps with engagement while you’re speaking
  5. Show your facial expressions
  6. Vary the pace of your speaking
  7. Watch the tone of your voice
  8. Use your fingers when talking numbers (e.g. counting)
  9. Pretend the camera is a person you’re speaking to
  10. Make use of silence
