A Strong Opening Grabs Audience Attention!

Use A “Moment Before Problem” to Fuel the Opening

A Strong Opening Begins Before You Speak

Bring the Audience Into Your World

Physicalize to Get Out of Your Head & Into Your Body


 • Find a unique and interesting way to make an entrance.

 • React to the opening noise, music or sound effects.

 • Gesture to the environment, location, space, audience, person or object.

 • Hold up a physical or imaginary object, product, or visual prop.

 • Point to a real or imagined visual display or screen.

 • Get the Audience Involved: Raise your hand, pose a question, ask for a show of hands.

 • Use a strong movement or gesture to get you out of your head and into your body.
