The Confident Speaker Podcast #4: How to Project Confidence Online

In this episode, I share 5 ways to project confidence online ... even if you don't feel it.

What You'll Hear:

Confident people are seen as:

  • Persuasive

  • Influential

  • Inspiring

These are the same kind of people that:

  • Land the job

  • Close the deal

  • Make connections

  • Gain respect

  • Earn trust

Even if you feel like you don't have any of these qualities, you can learn them through practice and awareness


1. Pleasant resting face

  • This communicates positivity and charisma

2. Take up all of your space

  • To appear more powerful, sit up straight with your chest forward  

3. Give and receive eye contact

  • This is a key non-verbal cue that communicates confidence and assertiveness

4. Project your voice

  • Talk a little louder and slower than you're used to; breathe deep from your diaphragm​


5. Get comfortable

  • Eliminate things that make you physically uncomfortable (sun in your eyes, restrictive clothing, sitting in an uncomfortable chair, etc.)

BONUS tips!

  • Speak up

    • People who share their ideas are perceived as more confident and charismatic than those who don't

  • Prepare ahead of time

    • Plan for a good question you can ask or a relevant tidbit you can share so you don't have to think on your feet

  • Practice

    • Implement these tips in your daily interactions until they become second nature
