TEMPTING TITLES TANTALIZE and TEASE
Opening: As speakers, we know it's criminal to be boring in your speeches. Let's take this farther, and say it is also criminal to have a boring title for your speech/presentation.
Promise: If your title is dull, gray, and boring, it'll project a similar image of you, resulting in a poor start to your speech. On the other hand, if you put effort into creative titles, you will be rewarded tenfold. A great title will set the tone or stage, by instilling curiosity, interest and intrigue in your audience's mind. They will be anxious to hear what you have to say because you have created a great first impression of both you and your speech. examples from past world champions and world champion finalists of previous years.
Roadmap: We'll explore a few questions that will provide you with some food for thought when you create a title for your next speech/presentation. The titles mentioned below are examples from past world champions and world champion finalists of previous years.
Your speech title is the first impression an audience has of both you and your speech. That's the only part of your speech that audiences know in advance. If you're speaking at a conference, they see it on paper which will motivate them ...or not...to attend your breakout session. If it's being mentioned to an audience for the first time by the person introducing you, as in a contest, then that may be the first time they hear it. Will your audience be enthused to want to hear what you have to say??
