Don’t use “I, we, our” in a presentation? And saying something instead of “First” or “Second”

Don’t use “I, we, our” in a presentation? And saying something instead of “First” or “Second.” This video will give you really great presentation skills you can use right away.

Watch the video to find the answer. Thanks to one of our valuable members for the question!

I followed the link from Facebook to get here. I enjoyed your presentation. At the end, you suggest clicking on the “like” button or “tweet”, but they don’t exist, :(

I estimate it won’t be long before I need to start making video presentations so I hope to take your free course soon.

Thank you

Hi Buck,

Thanks for letting us know. Amazing how easy it is for things to be missed, so really appreciate you letting us know. The buttons are there now…hopefully :)

The explanation is quite clear. I like it: short and concise. Well, I ‘d like to get some ideas on how to make the opening sentences: you know, the sentences you use to catch the audience’s attention before we discuss the main body. Are there any tips of how to make them interesting? Thanks.

Hi Ben,

Nice to hear from you.
Thanks for the comment and the question.

Headlines or bold statements work great for getting their attention and for an opening statement. Have a look at Video 1 in The Presentation Boss Mini Course. I talk about using “How” statements, statistics, or numbers of something to open your presentation.

For example…

“How to get an A+ in calculus”
“98% of all math students need to know this”
“7 Easy steps to getting a A+ in calculus”

Hope that helps. Let me know.
