Silence is rare in our current communication climate. Remember the last time you just sat in silence. With no music. No background noises. Just pure silence. I wouldn’t be surprised if you couldn’t recall the last time you experienced this. I sure can’t. That’s what makes silence so jarring – in a fantastic way. On this week’s episode of Presentation Scientists, hosts Scott Schwertly and Gabby Reed demonstrate why presenters should utilize the power of silence in their presentations. Here are the top 3 reasons why:

  1. Relaxation
  2. Attention
  3. Activity
