Bronwyn Ritchie explains how to get your presentation started the right way for her Pivotal Public Speaking blog. See my top takeaways from the article underneath.
- It’s crucial to nail the opening of your presentation, if you don’t grab your audience’s attention in those first few seconds you may never do it
- The best way to do this is with confidence; walk onstage, pause a second to make them wait, take a deep breath, and begin strong
- Be sure your words are deliberate and focused, chosen with care, and smile—the stage is yours
