How start a presentation

Hello.

I have a presentation to prepar. It is my first.
I am preparing my speech but I can find the best sentence to start my presentation.
Shall I start by : "First, I want to thank you for you presence" or directly I say : "In this presentation I will try to introduce..." ????

Thank you for your help.

Fadoua.

What is the presentation going to be about?
You could start with an evocative image to immediately interact with the audience and get their attention. This is a fresh way to start a living presentation and not starting with the usual introduction stuff.

From Cliff's article:

Tip: Try turning your PowerPoint approach inside out. The next time you make a presentation, replace one of your usual bulleted lists with a new slide that contains only a simple image on a blank background. When you show the slide to your audience, ask them a question about it. Listen to their response, repeat it back, and tailor your talk to what you heard. If you've managed to draw forth any information that helps you adapt and adust your dialogue with your audience, you're well on your way to evoking communication success.

I think you kind of have a good idea on how to attract the audience. Most audiences like when you greet them or show them some kind of attention, because it, somewhat, lets them know that they matter. I think you should start off with the "thank you" idea, because with their responses it would kind of break the ice since it's your first time. I would do it that way because i am very nervous when it comes to speaking with an audience, and if they respond and give some feedback, it would give me a sense of relief.

I would start out with a startling statistic, or something about the housing that most people would not know about, and would find interesting. You need to start out with an ATTENTION grabber.

Well, I wouldn't worry about the beginning first. You should first worry about the content of the presentation, what you want to communicate to the audience, what is your core message?
Then you should create a presentation based on your core message, you should be very clear of what you want to say.

After you have finished all that, then you should worry about the beginning. But as a tip for the first few sentences: I would thank everyone for showing up and that they took time to listen to your talk.

Regards,

Oliver

the presentation is more for the student who is reporting than the students listening. the teacher is assured that the student learns someting from the subject and it may only be the topic that the reporter was assigned.
