Public speaking introductions are the decisive keys to your talk or public speech. An effective public speech introduction, like a key, not only opens the talk, it opens the audience minds.
Like a key that unlocks a door, the introduction opens minds by arousing interest. It will also prepare the mind for what is being said. If done properly, it can create a hunger for the talk. Talk introductions set the stage for the act of the spoken word.
