"Acting out" is an idiom which can mean someone is misbehaving or not managing an impulse. Or it can mean someone is acting in a way that is out of character, for example; putting your feet up on the table in a meeting. "Acting" has many meanings. As a verb, you can act out a situation that happens to a friend, as a kind of role play to better understand what happened. When we say, "It was all an act" we mean someone was pretending when we thought they were sincere. "Acting out" in a presentation in this sense is thinking about the gestures you make and what they may mean. As always my goal is to provide you with business English tips that help you survive in an English speaking work environment; with the help of humour.
Like a "Quack", (A quack is someone who is pretending to be a dignified professional when handing out advice.) my aim is to get the proper dose of hilarious and informative news to you: please feel free to let me know if something hits a nerve. I look forward to hearing from you.
