Don’t Break the Fifth Wall — 2 Comments

  1. What a great post. I’ve done a bit of public speaking in the past, and do well with a good opening. I cringe when I hear weak openers like, “Hi, my name is…,” or “I hope everyone can hear me….” I hadn’t thought about how “clean-up” impacts the finish. Thanks for sharing your wisdom.

    • My favorite horrible opener is, “Good morning!”
      “I can’t hear you. Let’s try it again.”
