Thank You, Mean It
After finishing a talk, we're often so ready to get off the podium and onto celebrating/ relief eating/ schmoozing that we mutter "thank you," almost as an apology.
Next time, try taking a breath, looking one person in the eye, and making that "thank you" the most important part of your presentation.
It gives your audience time to process what you've just said, makes you look poised, and recognizes the time people have taken to listen to you.
No matter how your talk went, you've just made the world a better place by offering some sincere gratitude!
