PostSubject: Effective Public Speaking   Mon 17 Jul - 16:24

In modern English, Presentations tend to be much less formal than they were even twenty years ago. Most audience these days prefer a relatively informal approach. However, there is a certain structure to the opening of a Presentation that you should observe.

Get people's attention
Welcome them
Introduce yourself
State the purpose of your presentation
State how you want to deal with questions


Get people's attention

If I could have everybody's attention.
If we can start.
Perhaps we should begin?
Let's get started.

Welcome them

Welcome to .......
Thank you for coming today.
Good morning, ladies and gentlemen.
On behalf of ..........., I'd like to welcome you.

Introduce yourself

My name's ............................. I'm responsible for .....................
For those of you who don't know me, my name's ...........................
As you know, I'm in charge of public relations.
I'm the new Marketing Manager.

State the purpose of your presentation

This morning I'd like to present .............................
Today I'd like to discuss our failures in ............................... and suggest a new approach.
This afternoon, I'd like to report on my study into .............................
What I want to do this morning is to talk to you about .........................
What I want to do is to tell you about our successes and failures in ....................................
What I want to do is to show you how we've made our first successful steps in .............................................

State how you want to deal with questions.

If you have any questions, I'll be happy to answer them as we go along.
Feel free to ask any questions.
Perhaps we can leave any questions you have until the end?
There will be plenty of time for questions at the end.

Of course, these are only suggestions and other language is possible. Even within this limited group of phrases, just choose a few you feel comfortable with and learn and use those.

Good luck sunny

in fact, all what a person needs to do before presenting something in public is to prepare his topic well. that's all. the phrases that are said at the begining or at the end of any presentation are learnt unconsciously. you can just say hello and go on, and at the end say thank you, but if you don't prepare well, it will be a disaster.
