Executive Studio Presentation Tip #3

Welcome to the Executive Studio!

We’re back with Presentation Tip #3 for you:

Tip #3

monroe at mic - croppedKnow Your “Open” Cold!

We’re not talking about turning up the AC in the Conference Room. We’re talking about Nailing your Intro. Sticking the landing. Throwing a strike on the first pitch. But too often it doesn’t happen. We see this over and over and over in our work with clients, no matter how senior they are. Someone steps up to the podium and loses their audience before they get to the end of their first sentence.

Why?
The answer is pretty simple: They failed to connect on their first throw. Their first line is delivered to the floorboards. Their head was buried in their notes as they introduced themselves. They read from the page how “happy they are” to see everyone. Without ever looking up! Really? It looks to us like the only thing they’re happy to see is that sheet of paper in front of them.

What a lost opportunity! But you can make sure that never happens to you…
