Exercise: Learn from the masters
Watch the first minute of the following presentations. Even if you want to continue watching (especially if you want to continue watching!), pause the presentation after the first minute and think about the opening.
Was it interesting? Did it make you want to watch more? If so, why?
Even though the presentations are all quite different, there are similarities in the way the speakers chose to open them. Can you see any patterns? Have you been able to identify any techniques that you, too, could use as a great opening for your own presentation?
