You might be a little nervous before giving a speech at the conference center in Houston , but the right preparation can work wonders for your confidence. Check out this video to find out how you can create an attention-grabbing presentation opener.
It’s okay to be nervous when giving a presentation, but do your best not to show it. Stand still with your hands by your sides when you introduce yourself, and offer your credentials in addition to your name and job title. After introducing yourself, it’s time to deliver the hook. This is where you tell the audience what you’ll show them, which should inspire positive feelings and “hook” them in. You can then reveal your agenda to the audience and quickly summarize the goal of your presentation. Finally, give your viewers a statistic that is relevant to their needs and the information that you have to offer them.
