How To Open a
Presentation
And Engage Your Audience Immediately
The Problem
People begin by talking
about themselves and
their organization
And
Nobody Cares
So don’t just open…
Leap
Jump right in
with a story…
…or a
question…
…what
about an
interesting
fact?

The world’s
data doubles
every year!
Or tell a joke.
You could
make a
startling
statement…
“The sun never rises
or sets.”
…or quote
someone
famous.
You could even
project an impactful
image…and simply
reflect on it.
Whatever you decide…
decide to be different.
Forget
“hello” and
“thank you”.
Get their
attention
when you
open your
mouth.
If you open well, it’s a
huge leap towards
success.
If you don’t
open well,
you could be
done.
