"In making a speech one must study three points: first, the means of producing persuasion; second, the language; third the proper arrangement of the various parts of the speech."

~ Aristotle

1. THE ALLURE OF A GOOD OPENING/INTRODUCTION

=============================================

I struggled a lot with introductions, probably because I normally would calm down and start to speak confidently when the introduction had already passed and I'm already into the body of the speech! I think most of us are like this - the nerves prior to speaking and at the beginning of our speech would rob us of making that all important first impression and to capitalise on the allure of a grand opening.

Introductions are to be prepared for and to be taken very seriously in any address. The body is nothing without the head.

2. A CHALLENGE FOR YOU

==============================================

I would like to challenge you to prepare carefully and grandly for the first part of your speech - it will give you a lot of confidence that will inspire the whole presentation.

3. QUOTES ABOUT OPENINGS

==============================================

"Do you suppose I could buy back my introduction to you?"

4. Our Vision and purpose

=============================================

Here at http://www.public-speaking-solutions.com, we believe in the power of words. We believe in the absolute necessity and importance of enhanced & effective delivery of speeches to create better understanding, empowerment and information. Talk should teach, guide, heal, empower and inspire. It should not destroy, demean, lie, gossip, cheat, swear, or destroy - that kind is cheap and useless. That is our vision and that is what we stand for.
