Described image
Figure 7

Everyone will have different opinions on what makes a good introduction.

Building on your thoughts from the previous section, write a short guide on what you think makes for the best opening for a talk.


  • There aren’t any hard and fast rules for introductions.
  • What might suit one speaker’s presentation style may not work for everyone.
  • You might want to think about Bill Davenhall’s talk or the one you will present yourself to give some focus.
