Six Minutes' 25 essential presentation skills

The Six Minutes blog compiled a great list: "25 Skills Every Public Speaker Should Have." Here are two of my favorites--both of which sound obvious, but that most presenters still miss more often than not:

11. Utilize 3-dimensional space - Chaining yourself to the lectern limits the energy and passion you can exhibit. Lose the notes, and lose the chain.
15. Interact with the audience - Ask questions (and care about the answers). Solicit volunteers. Make your presentation a dialogue.
23 more great tips are waiting for you here.
