PART 1 - PRESENTATION OPENING
Opening or starting a presentation is along with the ending the two most important
parts of a presentation. When you start, you need to make the audience interested in
what you're going to say, and also be clear and concise about the presentation's
content. There is a structure to starting or beginning a presentation which is the same
in English as in other languages. Doing a good business presentation is a skill that
everybody can learn.

PRESENTATION OPENING QUIZ
Read the following start of a business presentation. Focus on the words/phrases in
BOLD and think about their meaning and purpose.

Good Morning, ladies and gentlemen. First of all, let me start by thanking you for
attending this presentation. I understand that everybody is very busy. So your
attendance is very much appreciated. My name is Russel Grants and I work as the
European human resources manager for LPS. Which I have done for the past 5 years.
I have worked in the field of human resources in various companies since I left
university, nearly 20 years ago. In this presentation, I am going to talk to you about
why your staff are lazy and unproductive, or to put it another way, how employers
and managers mismanage their staff. Today's presentation is divided into three
parts, which I will tell you about now. To begin with, I will give an overview of how
current employee under-performance is costing companies millions in lost revenue,
every minute of every day. Then I will explain the causes of this under-performance.
And finally, I will outline an easy method to rectify this problem, which will keep your
staff motivated and more productive. If you have any questions, I would be pleased to
answer them at the end of the presentation. But before we start the first part, ask
yourselves, what you would do if you could reduce the relative labour cost of each
product you manufacture or sell, or each service you provide? As you all well know,
labour normally accounts for about 40% of total costs in most businesses. A lot of
money! Money which could be spent in other areas like Research and
Development(R&D) or by reducing the price of your product.
