Topic: Are you opening and closing your presentation with Impact?
Speakers: June Vieira and Regan Durham
Break the bad habit of weak beginnings and uneventful endings. Don’t waste the most important part of the presentation in boredom and logistics. Make the message stick with an emotional payoff. Use the psychological effects of primacy and recency to make your message unforgettable and to provoke action.
Start your journey to topnotch public speaking skills by mastering the opening and closing of your presentations.
