Rather than “limp” in to your next presentation, pay attention to boldly choose a good Attention-Getting introduction. Grab the audience by the lapels so to speak, make them say a quiet thoughtful “ahh,’ or tickle their funny bone. The next time you have the opportunity to deliver a speech, training session or presentation, give special thought to how you can start off vividly.
These specific methods may help you get unstuck, or may spark a new idea for creating your next good speech-beginning.
Deftly use humor or an opening quote.
