The first 30 seconds of your presentation are going to either develop audience interest…or damage it!  It’s essential that you open with a fantastic impact.  And here’s one way I use to open a keynote presentation and engage the audience. How can you creatively and impactfully make a great first impression and have your audience on the edge of their seats?

Business presentations can be soooooo boring if they start on a sour note.  Yes, I understand that not many employees in organisations have actually been coached or trained on how to present, but that shouldn’t stop you exploring creative ways to make an instant and positive impact which invites your audience members to pay attention, prick up their ears, and get ready for something absolutely fantastic.

The video below is an observation test.  Please enjoy it best by watching it in real-time, without pausing or rewinding the clip, and let’s see how well you do.  Go fot it…

How did you do?  How many of my questions did you answer correctly?

OK, this was a light-hearted observation test, but one that works wonderfully well for me and my audiences.  What can you do to make a more impactful start to your presentation?
