In stand-up comedy, those who are successful deliver the first punchline in the first 15 seconds. The second punchline is delivered in the next 15 seconds. This earns you the right to speak for a longer duration before the next punchline.
When you're pitching an idea, don't start with information your audience already knows. Instead, throw in your teaser immediately to make them interested in listening to the rest of your pitch.
Don't assume that your audience has prior knowledge. If your audience doesn't understand you, you've lost them.
When you're presenting, try not to speak in acronyms and jargon. For example, instead of saying NFTs, say non-fungible tokens. Ensure your audience knows what you mean before you continue.
Think about who your audience is. Would your idea excite them or offend them?
People will support your idea if it is useful, interesting, relevant, not offensive. To manage this, pitch your idea first to a mentor or senior manager. If they question something, you may need to reconsider.
If someone in your audience has a question or objection, address it immediately. If you don't adapt quickly, they may start to doubt you or continue to think about their question for the remainder of your presentation. Neither is good.
If your manager asks you a question, don't say you'll address it at the end. Instead, answer the question and then get back to your story.
Use just enough words to get your point across and not one more.
When you pitch an idea, keep it short and to the point. It helps to keep the engagement of your audience. It shows that you value their time.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
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!
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.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
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.
