  • "Hi, I'm Jason Teteak. I help people overcome their fear of public speaking and deliver

  • amazing presentations and today I'm going to show you how to captivate your audience

  • within the first 5 minutes of your presentation. Here's how I'm going to do it."

  • "I'm going to show you 5 steps to deliver a killer opener."

  • If you're watching this, you probably already know that delivering great presentations is

  • critical to advance your career, but did you know that research says that most adults will

  • stop listening to your presentation within the first 10 minutes if they aren't convinced

  • there's something in it for them?

  • The problem is that most people don't know about the skills they need to hook their audience,

  • give a great presentation, and overcome their fear of doing it.

  • What am I going to do?

  • Hi Jim. How's it going?

  • I'm freaking out about this big presentation I have to give tomorrow.

  • Well did you write out your opener and practice it three times?

  • No.

  • No? Why not?

  • I'm terrified and I don't even know where to start.

  • Trust me, I've been in that situation before and it's not fun. So to help you out, I'm

  • going to show you my 5 step formula to deliver a killer presentation opener every time.

  • Let's start off with step number one, which is "Give a Confident Introduction."

  • One of the biggest mistakes people make when they start their presentation is showing nervousness.

  • Here's the key: It's not whether you're nervous, it's whether you show it.

  • The first thing you need to do is stand STILL. Don't move. Don't pace, and keep your hands

  • at your sides.

  • This is the most calm and confident stance on the planet, and it handles the number 1

  • need of your audience which is to feel safe.

  • Now you can introduce yourself and say "Hi, my name is Jason Teteak."

  • When you do this, bring your inflection down at the end to show confidence. Instead of:

  • "Hi, my name is Jason Teteak?" Say: "Hi, my name is Jason Teteak." See the difference?

  • Now we move on to step 2, which is Give Your Credentials.

  • This is where many presenters make the mistake of simply giving their title and years of

  • experience. They say something like "I'm a presentation skills coach and I've been doing

  • it for 20 years."

  • Yet, your audience wants to know: "What can you do for me?" They need to know who you

  • are, why you're the best person to deliver this presentation, and what you have to offer

  • them.

  • For example, I might say "I help people overcome their fear of public speaking and deliver

  • amazing presentations."

  • What would that look like for you? To figure this out, you need a short elevator speech.

  • It looks like this: "You know how some people have this problem? Well I offer this solution."

  • The solution you offer is how you help people.

  • For me, it was: "You know how some people have a fear of public speaking and a have

  • hard time getting their message across in a presentation? Well, I help them overcome

  • their fear of public speaking and deliver amazing presentations."

  • What's your credentials statement?

  • You'll be amazed at the effect this has on your audience.

  • Step 3 is to "Deliver Your Hook."

  • My hook for this video presentation might look something like this "I'm going to show

  • you how to captivate your audience within the first 5 minutes of your presentation."

  • When you do this, you have to get your audience to "feel" something.

  • How do you get them to feel?

  • You have 3 choices. You can get them to feel more happy, more successful, or more free.

  • Look at my hook. I said "I'm going to show you how to captivate your audience within

  • the first 5 minutes of your presentation."

  • When you captivate your audience within the first 5 minutes of your presentation, you'll

  • feel happier because they are listening to you, you'll feel more successful because you

  • look like an expert, and you'll feel more freedom when you spend less time worrying

  • about your presentation the night before.

  • Here's the practical for you. For your presentation, write down the words "I'm going to show you..."

  • then fill in the rest with something that's going to create more happiness, success, or

  • freedom for your audience.

  • Here's the rule. You can't tell them WHAT they're going to get until you've told them

  • WHY they would want it. Your hook has to be something that gets them to BELIEVE that

  • want what you're going to give them.

  • Take a moment right now and write down WHY your presentation will make your audience

  • more happy, successful or free in their life.

  • And now we move on to step number 4, which is to "Introduce Your Agenda." I recommend

  • you use a PowerPoint for this step, and the slide should look something like this.

  • The purpose of this step is to show your audience the takeaways for your presentation -- the

  • things they get to "take away" and use tomorrow after listening to your presentation.

  • Don't read the slide. They're adults. They can read. Instead, just give them a moment

  • to read it themselves, and introduce your agenda by summarizing what you'll be doing.

  • You do this by mentioning the number of takeaways you'll be giving them, and paraphrasing the

  • goal of your presentation.

  • Here's what it looks like:

  • "I'm going to show you 5 steps to deliver a killer opener."

  • What would this look like for you?

  • The last step is Step 5 Give a Credible Statement.

  • You can do this by giving relevant or compelling data to your audience to support your message.

  • Remember how I did this at the beginning of this video?

  • I said, "You probably already know that delivering great presentations is critical to advance

  • your career, but did you know that research says that most adults will stop listening

  • to your presentation within the first 10 minutes if they aren't convinced there's something

  • in it for them?"

  • When you do this within the first 2 minutes of your presentation, your audience starts

  • to trust you. Without bragging, your listeners start to think "oooh this guy knows what he's

  • talking about"

  • Done.

  • When I put those 5 steps together, it sounds like this:

  • "Hi, I'm Jason Teteak. I help people overcome their fear of public speaking and deliver

  • amazing presentations and today I'm going to show you how to captivate your audience

  • within the first 5 minutes of your presentation. Here's how I'm going to do it."

  • "I'm going to show you 5 steps to deliver a killer opener."

  • "You probably already know that delivering great presentations is critical to advance

  • your career, but did you know that research says that most adults will stop listening

  • to your presentation within the first 10 minutes if they aren't convinced there's something

  • in it for them?"

  • Wow! Do you see how powerful that is?

  • Those are the 5 steps to deliver a killer presentation opener whenever you do a presentation.

  • I know this is a lot of information for you to take in.

  • For that reason, I put together some free video training for everyone who stayed to

  • the end of this video.

  • You'll not only learn how to give a killer opener, but the exact skills and specific

  • techniques you need to nail your entire presentation.
