Eye Contact refers to continuous visual contact with the audience while speaking; Audience Contact to similar

movements of the head and body so as to face different parts of the audience directly while speaking. 5. Gestures include fluid and apt "body punctuation"; using "natural" gestures to reinforce your speech. 6. Fluency refers to the ability to deliver a speech smoothly.
