Starting and Finishing Presentations - Facebook Live

Chris Dawes; the founder of Open Dawes Training, professional motorsports commentator, presenter (business, TV, live event, and radio), and voice over artist; is interviewed by Natalie Sherman of Naturally Social on a Facebook Live.

In this instalment of numerous planned Facebook Live's on Open Dawes Training's Facebook page Chris talks about both how best to start and end your presentations. An area that is often overlooked, with the focus being purely on the content.

This Facebook live looks at making the start and finish as powerful as the middle, to give a taster of hugely useful modules of the Open Dawes Training courses.

In this interview, we look at things such as:

  • Why the start and end is at least as important as the content.
  • How the impact of the content could be lost without context or grabbing attention
  • Various ways to grab your audiences attention to take them on a journey with your presentation
  • How to finish so that the audience remember the key elements of your presentation
  • Finishing your part, but leaving them with a desire to do/know more
  • And DON'T simply finish on questions...
  • Create a new habit with the final words you utter at the end of your presentation!

The next planned Facebook Live is scheduled for July 9th 2019, and will be about Tips on dealing with (or encouraging) Audience Interaction; or potentially dealing with a lack of. You can also subscribe to receive future tips and advice articles/videos
