What you outlined sounds totally fine.
Haseeb Qureshi

I do a lot of public speaking. Many times, when I prepare for a public presentation, I nix a bunch of things I want to say/do because it sounds “unnatural.”

Then, I often see other speakers doing exactly what I nixed, and it doesn’t look or sound unnatural at all when they do it.

The point is, the other side probably doesn’t know what “feels” natural/unnatural to you; only you do. So go ahead and do whatever you want (within reason, of course) — the only one who knows you is you.
