Why is the opening of your presentation so important?
When you speak to an audience you have precious few seconds to make a positive first impression. That first impression must entice them to listen and believe you. Mess up your opening and you loose. You might have an important and valuable presentation prepared but if they’re turned off and tuned out at the beginning, everything you’ve prepared was wasted.
The opening to your presentation is critical to your success. You shouldn’t be surprised that poor speakers have poor openings. When you speak, you can recover from many mistakes during your presentations – but a weak opening isn’t one of them. Be sure to start your presentation strong.
