Are you having trouble with deciding what to say first when you have to speak? Here’s the tip of the day: Go directly into your content. No preamble, no pleasantries, and no “Thank You”.
The first words should be about your content. Start with a relevent story or question to engage the audience right away.
Avoid pleasentries “Thank you”, “Glad to be here” or “Mister Toastmaster” and use your content to connect with your audience right off the bat.
