How Catchy Is Your Intro – The Importance Of A Strong Opening
How catchy is your intro - The Importance of a Strong Opening
In writing an essay, a punch in the introductory part would pull the interest of the reader. This is true with public speaking as well. When you open your speech with a bang, you get the attention of the audience. This is a very important stage of our speech. As you deliver what you have prepared, you need to have the attention of our audience.
How would you do that? Well, there are numerous tips available, some are tested and proven while there are tips that are not yet common but may work as well for you. We would be willing to share to you tips that could open your mind in welcoming ideas that would help you speak with our audience in a manner that you could leave the impression you want to.
* Action speaks louder than words.
Instead of speaking all through out your speech, you could start your speech with a catchy gesture but in connection with the speech you are about to deliver. We know what the power of gestures is. For example, when you are to talk about Anti-abortion laws, you could start with a strong pound on the podium or a hand gesture showing rejection. This would also prepare the audience mind on what you are going to talk about.
* Laughter is the pill
Boredom in the part of the audience is the biggest enemy of a public speaker. To insert humor would be a big help in keeping your audience to be with you until you end our speech and definitely receive applauses. Humor is an asset. Whatever form of talk or conversation you have, with whatever number of person/s, cracking jokes or playing with with your witty thoughts would be great openers.
* Quotable quotes
There is this touch of wisdom clipped with quotations. When you use a line from someone of credibility, you would be starting your speech with that approval of truth and validity. Quotes would signify a speaker's depth and preparation. There is that impression when you quote people of fame or a person who has relevance with your topic that you are a well-researched resource speaker.
* Another Cinderella story
Stories are a hit for people of all ages. When you could attach the strings of a story to your speech, you would be able to have an audience until you conclude your speech. Tell stories to our audience, they would be interested to listen more if you start your speech with a story.
Keep these reminders as your guide as you grow with your speech power.
