Open wide!

Fellow speaker,

Author Jeremy Donovan's in depth study of World Champion speakers suggests the most effective openers to your speech are:
  • Personal story - tell a story that shows you in a vulnerable position or situation
  • Compelling question - ask a question that gets your audience to think deeply
Opening night,
