Well look at Brian Tracy during that talk. There is a lot more to it than the smile, which is on point. The clothes are on point, the speech is on point, the tone of voice is on point, the silences are on point. The pauses are thought out and on point, and add gravity and concern where required. The grandfatherly diction brings confidence. The friendly tone disarms you. The funny noises. Each word is carefully planned out and rehearsed before hand.
And the body language is especially on point. Every movement is rehearsed, every gesture planned before hand. That 40 or so minutes on stage took months to prepare for. Just about everything on that stage is deliberate.
This is a guy who has his persuasion XP all maxed out.
