  • Wear clean, shiny shoes.
  • Open with a powerful quote or personal, relevant story
  • Focus on your audience. Be confident but not overbearing.
  • Your first 15 seconds is critical. This is when your audience decides if you deserve their time and attention.

B – Be natural and sincere, not mechanical. Body Language and Build your message.
  • Smile at the audience.
