http://presentationexpressions.com In this week's presentation tip video, you're going to learn a very cool tip from Instructional Designer and presentations blogger Craig Hadden to help you figure out what to say to your audience when starting your presentation.

UPDATE: The music comes on at 20:45 (very loudly!) and was a big editing mistake by me. Thanks to Craig for pointing it out.

Craig is going to talk about how to get into the mind of your audience with a simple technique that will help you develop your presentation content faster. The great thing is you'll also better understand what your audience wants to hear.

Why is all this important?

Because if you can talk to your audience and say what they want to hear, then your audience will pay attention and be riveted to you and your presentation. And it's a lot easier to persuade someone when you can speak to them and say things they want to hear.

And Craig Hadden is going to show you how.

I met Craig online after I saw a great article (http://remotepossibilities.wordpress....) he wrote on his blog Remote Possibilities (http://remotepossibilities.wordpress.com) about answering your audience's key question. Craig described in great detail 4 things you can do that starts with answering the burning question every audience has, which is... "What's in it for me?"

So I got in touch with Craig and asked him if he would like to be interviewed and to share his technique for opening a presentation and really getting your audience's attention. Luckily, he agreed and the video you'll see is Craig and I chatting over Skype.
