When speaking in front of people, you have about 10 seconds to capture their attention before they tune out, so you must do something interesting.
Start with a prop. It can be any physical object, such as using a piece of fruit as a metaphor.
You must get the audience moving and speaking and responding to you if you want them to engage with what you're saying.
In the first minute, captivate the attention, using humour, provocative questions, or props. However, don't tell them yet what you're going to talk about. First, capture their attention.
No matter how dry your subject is, use stories to move people emotionally because they are persuaded by anecdotes, even though it's a logical fallacy.
When you're in front of a group of people, you're performing. You need to move your body and embody characters.
Try to bring people to the present tense of your story, act it out, make it vivid in their minds. Your goal is for them to walk away behaving differently.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
