BUT IT IS SO EASY!
There are a few very simple techniques which if you learn, you will look incredible .... and hands down better than all your colleagues
We break public speaking down into
It's so easy to become amazing quickly...
The average candidate with no public speaking experience - just by looking at this prezi, you WILL be better than them!!!
Public Speaking is EASY!!
Just think of it like a series of easy checklists

tick, tick, tick = stunning speaker
This is the MOST IMPORTANT BIT OF PUBLIC SPEAKING
You can be rubbish at public speaking, but if you come up with a DIFFERENT, UNIQUE or AWESOME opening--> People will think you are an incredible public speaker

GIVE A UNIQUE OPENING and you've done 60% of the work needed to give an INCREDIBLE SPEECH
People pay attention at the
BEGINNING
of things and at the
END


YOU NEED TO BE DIFFERENT AND SMASH IT HOME at the BEGINNING and the END
so that, even if they don't remember everything you've said, people go away thinking
''that was the person with that incredible opening, wow they were INCREDIBLE''
As human beings we unfortunately make very strong first impressions, very QUICKLY!!

You have a 30 second window to impress (or distract) your audience and WIN their attention from their iPhones... 30 seconds, otherwise it's gone, you've lost their attention and it wont come back!
We've given you 8 incredible openings to STUN your audience into TOTAL AWE....

9 openings and 3 categories

USE them, steal them, pillage them.

Think of them as a drag and drop formula. ''Hmm today i think i'm going to to use this one''.

Use any of them and the audience will think YOU ARE INCREDIBLE!!
You need to be different to Prof Boring who just comes up to the front and says quietly

''my name is Prof Boring and I'm here to talk to today about differential equations'

--> he's lost the audience attention already

YOU need to come up
and start off
WITH A BANG

''DIFFERENTIAL EQUATIONS WILL CAHNGE YOUR LIFE''
OR
''EVERY SECOND, A DIFFERENTIAL EQUATIONS SAVES YOUR LIFE''
OR
''HOW MANY OF YOU HAVE HAD A DATE WITH A DIFFERENTIAL EQUATION?''
This short video is an AMAZING example of how to open with a BANG and whip up a FRENZY using QUESTIONS!!
THE LAST EXERCISE
8) Give them a mental picture
Imagine you are an Ethiopian boy walking down the street when...
