How to Start a Presentation: Expression to Introduce Idea, Concept or Opinion [VIDEO]

Here is a presentation expression you can use to start a presentation and introduce an idea, concept or opinion that will help you stand out from other presenters. https://youtu.be/2BQe8D1q0jE

What it is

The expression is "In today's society, it's more important than ever to…” and it helps you connect the audience to something they are already aware of, or that is generally common knowledge, to the idea, concept or opinion that you want to present.

Why Use It

It’s ok to start your presentation with a basic introduction, but sometimes you don’t have that much time or you want to do something different to stand out from other presenters.

And being different from other presenters is important in any kind of presentation because your presentation is likely not the only one the audience has heard, or will listen to.

Why it’s effective

When you use an expression like this, it gets the audience to agree with something you are saying. And when they agree with you, it’s easier for them to listen to what you have to say afterwards.

Think of it as warming up before you do an activity. It’s a lot easier and safer than just jumping right in.

And it should be pretty obvious to the audience what will come next in your presentation because you’ve already introduced the bigger picture to them.

Examples

  • "In today's society, it's more important than ever to have skills in various areas if you want to advance your career."
  • "In today's society, it's more important than ever to spend some time in nature if you want to stay healthy."
  • "In today's society, it's more important than ever to have strong presentation skills."

So that’s how you can start a presentation and introduce an idea, concept or opinion. Hope that helps and let me know if you have any questions or comments.

Thanks.

Awesome Presentation Websites I Recommend [VIDEO]

This post was originally published on my presentations site: http://presentationexpressions.com/awesome-presentation-websites-i-recommend-video In this video you will learn about two of my favourite presentations sites… there are certainly others, and I will get to those in a future video. But this time, I want to tell you about Charles Greene III, the Presentation Magician, and Craig Hadden of Remote Possibilities. I’ve known both these gentlemen for a number of years and although they live on different sides of the earth, they share in common a passion for presentations and sharing their knowledge.

The Presentation Magician

I don’t remember the exact details of how Charles and I met, but I think he asked me about Edutige microphones several years back. Since that time, we’ve become friends and like emailing each other with stories of what we’re doing, our children and about what camera gear we want to get.

Charles lives in Washington, DC and is not only a professional presenter, but he’s also a real magician! How cool is that, right?

Anyway, Charles is an awesome teacher. His style is very laid back but chock full of useful hints. And he makes it very simple to understand and use what he teaches. Definitely watch his videos and read his tips on his YouTube Channel and website, www.charlesgreene.com.

Remote Possibilities

For whatever reason, I have a clearer memory of meeting Craig because I did a Skype interview with him several years ago after he had posted a comment on my website (or maybe it was my YouTube Channel?). Craig’s website is full of practical advice and all the information is well-laid out and easy to understand.

The cool thing about Craig’s posts is that he always has practical examples and references some of the more famous presentations experts to support his ideas.

I highly recommend checking out both Charles and Craig’s websites, and Charles’ YouTube Channel. I’m sure you’ll come away impressed.

Let me know if you have any questions or comments.

Thank you.
