If you are planning to do a lively presentation that involves the audience members, you must be careful of what you say at the beginning of your speech.
Some audience members would rather have you sit down so they could be the star on stage, but others dread the thought of even being noticed while they are sitting in the audience.
Here is a critical phrase you can adapt and say during the beginning of your presentation to help the sensitive members of the audience relax and pay attention to your content.
"We're going to have lots of fun and interaction today, but don'tworry. You won't be put on the spot to do anything you don't want to do."
That simple phrase will help all of your audience members enjoy your presentation without anxiety.
