Recently, Jonathan Stark ran a great exercise to rethink how to start your talk:
… imagine that you simply walk on, write a single word on the board, and then just stand there until people either start asking questions or leave.
One word. To create the tension that opens up a discussion.
Not a word to summarize your talk.
A word to light a path into your talk.
What would be yours?
