Informative ebooks, entertaining CDs
A strong opening grabs the audience's interest, summarizes the subject and important ideas, and builds your credibility as a speaker. A quotation, a narrative, a question, humor, surprising facts or figures, anecdotes, illustrations, and allusions to current or historical events are all effective attention-getters. The beginning aids in drawing the audience's attention to the important ideas you want them to retain. Science communicators advise moving the speech's impact, which is often saved for the finish, to the speech's opening.
The beginning is what the audience uses to judge your credibility because they want to know why they should take you seriously. Therefore, it is crucial to establish your credibility as a speaker at the start, especially for a persuasive speech, so that the audience should want to accept your arguments as true. Along with citing reliable sources, you should also incorporate some expertise or knowledge that demonstrates your authority on the subject.
