I received this question from sonu and wanted to share my answer with you. I often get this type of question from people, so I hope my answer here will help other people, too. The original question was asked here: Sample Presentation: How to start and end a presentation in 2 minutes 37 seconds

Here is the question…

hello sir,

i am a student pursuing my engineering…i ‘ve a presentation on acoustic localization of aircraft next week.. i wanted to know what can be my introductory statement for this topic to give a good start… and how do i end it…

My answer…

Hi sonu,

Who is the audience? What do you have to talk about specifically? Why do you need to talk about it? Why should the audience care?

If you know the answers to those questions, it will be much easier to think of what to say to start your presentation. Your ending can be a recap and what you want your audience to do with the information you shared with them.

Hope that helps.

Carl
