    as a result

    The use of "as a result" in the following sentence seems awkward to me,
    "It's important to keep eye contact with the audience, or we may appear insincere. As a result, we should pay attention to this when giving a speech."
    Does this have something to do with how "as a result" is used or is it because the two sentences simply do not have a strong causal relation?

    Re: as a result

    'As a result' is out of place. The statement is not an outcome of the preceding statement but follows from it.

    I suggest 'therefore/as such/that being the case'.
