I stand corrected. And I now stand with the screen to my left when I present using slides as a visual.

Because audiences in western cultures read from left to right, it’s more natural for their eye movement. So, if you place yourself with the screen to your left as you’re facing the audience, all eyes can roll smoothly from you to the screen each time you bring up a new slide.

Easy enough, now just be sure to keep your body and eyes pointed toward your audience!
