Within the first few seconds of your presentation, the audience has already decided whether or not this is something they need to tune into.
The rest of your presentation is spent, confirming everything they already believe.
When we squander the first few moments by saying, “Hi, my name is Josh Allred. I’m here to tell you how to do presentations better.” You are sending the wrong signal to your audience.
You’ve lost your chance to connect with the ones that could have been persuaded.
Presentations are meant to change the world. Otherwise, why are you doing them?
Act. With more care.
