State Of the Art Presentations (SOAP) suggests associating points with positions.
To bring movement to your speech, use the physical space you have available and walk it. For example, if you’re presenting three points, talk about a Point A when you’re at your first position; then move out 2 or 3 steps and talk about Point B. This way, a movement that includes space will accompany your speech.
