Eye contact in public speaking
The night before a speech
The opening line in any speech is the most important.
Know it, live it, breathe it every second of every day leading up to your speech.
If you can deliver that opening line perfectly, confidently and powerfully, you will have already gained the confidence and interest of your audience and reduced your nerves before you even start your second line!
Your opening line is your first impression – use it to your advantage.
